.What kind of compositions can you submit?

It doesn’t matter when the composition was produced. You can enter older or already publicly published pieces that have already featured on CD albums or been performed at concerts, or completely new instrumental compositions never before played in public.
It is up to you whether you want to submit studio or demo recordings, or recordings from live performances and concerts.
