The winning submissions and composer will be announced by email and social media platforms on Feb 1, 2022. If no entry is found to be suitable by the judging panel, Madrigal Chorale reserves the right to withhold awards in either division.
Madrigal Chorale shall retain unlimited performance and mechanical rights to performances and recordings made by Madrigal Chorale. The composer shall retain all other copy, performance, and mechanical rights to their works.
By accepting the cash award, the winner grants performance and recording rights to Madrigal Chorale.
The winning compositions will be premiered and recorded by Madrigal Chorale at their May 2022 concert. Composers will be recognized at premiere (if their attendance is possible) and provided with a copy of the recording.
