impuls promotes and supports young composers not only within the framework of its academy, but also through the international impuls composition competition. Registration has started… Deadline to apply: March 31st, 2023.

Every second year, impuls awards composition commissions for ensemble to young composers who are nominated via the impuls composition competition. Subsequently, these composers are also invited to the impuls composition workshop in Vienna and Graz, where their new works are developed, discussed and finalized collectively and intensively over the course of almost a week with top ensembles such as Klangforum Wien.

In addition, the composers are of course invited to the premiere of their new pieces at the impuls Festival and the impuls Academy in Graz. Furthermore, impuls also tries to support the works and composers through recordings, PR and follow-up concerts, among other things.
