ASCAP/SEAMUS 2022 Student Competition Submission Form

Note that only members of SEAMUS who are full-time students are eligible to enter this competition. If your entry is a collaborative composition, you must have been the primary composer and the work must have been written mostly by students.

Please be aware that the ASCAP/SEAMUS submission process is entirely separate from the SEAMUS Conference submission process. Submissions for the ASCAP/SEAMUS prize are not automatically considered for conference inclusion, and vice-versa. Students wishing to enter the competition and submit to the conference must complete both submission processes. Students may submit the same piece for both entries, or two different pieces.

Individuals are allowed one ASCAP/SEAMUS submission.

This is an anonymous competition. Make sure to remove your name from the content of the files, including MP3 metadata and PDF scores. 


Applicants to the ASCAP/SEAMUS Student Commissioning Competition must be student members of SEAMUS and must be either currently enrolled in an academic program in the United States (high school through doctoral studies) or a United States citizen studying abroad. All completed submissions will be verified for student status against current SEAMUS membership records.

For more information, see the ASCAP/SEAMUS page at seamusonline.org.

Judging of multichannel music submissions may be from stereo audio files depending on the availability of judges with access to the necessary equipment. Please provide a stereo mixdown for adjudication purposes.


You must be a SEAMUS member in good standing to submit. If you are not a SEAMUS member, or you have not renewed your membership, please go to SEAMUSonline.org to join or renew.

You will also need a free Submittable account profile to access the submission form. This is a separate username and password from your SEAMUS account—they are not linked. Please use this to log in to the submission form.

Please direct any questions regarding your submission or the submission process to Becky Brown, Director of Technological Development at: techdev@seamusonline.org.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
