Likewise in former competition notices, the jury of the New Hungarian Musical Forum Composer Competition will focus on the approach of representatives of the generation of young composers with a remarkable oeuvre. This year, the composers participating in the competition will pay tribute to the memory of Zoltán Kodály on the occasion of the 135th anniversary of the birth and 50th anniversary of the death of the composer. Therefore, composers are expected to submit works inspired by the art or personality of Zoltán Kodály.

Regarding the arrangement chamber music compositions of 7 to 15 minutes, composers enjoy big artistic freedom: they may write for 10 to 16 musicians, and beside the usual instruments in a classical orchestra, they may also apply bass guitar or dulcimer.
