You may begin an application using the form below. Here is some information about the application process:

  • You'll need to submit 3 Soundcloud links of your work, and 3 corresponding PDFs (max 10MB each) of the sheet music.
  • The audio must be hosted on Soundcloud, with no exceptions, for administrative reasons. Our system ensures that the audio remains anonymous to the judges. Here is some information on how to upload to Soundcloud
  • Private Soundcloud links are fine. Here is some information on how to generate a private sharing link on Soundcloud.
  • Names must be removed from all submitted PDFs.
  • Identifying information in the Soundcloud sound file (like a spoken introduction naming the composer) must be removed.
  • The Soundcloud audio will be rendered anonymously during adjudication. Any information or metadata on the soundcloud site will not be visible during adjudication.
  • Your application will remain anonymous throughout the adjudication procedure.
  • You may start your application and resume it later. You will be emailed a secure link to your personal application.
  • Judges will not be able to see your PDFs during the preliminary rounds of adjudication.
  • The judges will be the Listenpony artistic directors, external advisers and the performers of each concert.
  • Composers previously commissioned by Listenpony may not apply.
