Announcement of the results for the 1st Lin Yao Ji International Competition for Composition

The Lin Yao Ji Music Foundation of China is pleased to announce the results for the 1st Lin Yao Ji International Competition for Composition. We would like to extend our thanks to all participating composers and congratulate them on the high standards shown in their submissions.

We are extremely grateful to Members of the Competition’s Adjudication Panel – Professors Chen Yi (Chair), Victor Chan and Steven Stucky, who all worked very hard to study and evaluate the large number of entries received. During the process of adjudication, each Member of the Panel adjudicated on the works submitted (i) without knowledge of the names or background of the composers and (ii) independently without consultation with or knowledge of scores given by other Members. 

The Winner of each Category was the composition which received the highest aggregate score awarded by Members of the Panel. Merit Awards were selected by the Chair of the Panel upon reviewing works that were within the top aggregate scores in the respective categories. 

We gratefully acknowledge the generous donation of the prizes for the winner in each of the 3 categories by the China Foundation, Giver Trust and Mr Scott Shu Kun Cao respectively, and for their continued support of our causes. 

 

We congratulate the following prize winners of the Competition:

Category A: The Ma Si-cong Centennial Prize in the sum of US$1000, donated by Mr Scott Shu Kun Cao

Tonia Ko (United States of America), “Spindrift” for solo violin

Category B: A cash prize in the sum of US$1500, donated by Giver Trust

Category C: A cash prize in the sum of US$2000, donated by the China Foundation (Revised on 4 December 2012)

For enquiries, please email info@linyaoji.com.


Updated 4 December 2012: It has come to our attention that the winning works in Category C have both been publicly performed and are therefore ineligible. The results of the 1st International Competition for Composition are hereby re-announced, with changes to Category C only. The Winning Prize of Category C, awarded to Mei-fang Lin for her work "L’image Reconstituée for violin, flute, clarinet, cello and piano",  and the Merit Award of Category C, given to Feng-Hsu Lee for his work "Unbearable and Watery Eyes for violin, percussion and piano" are hereby revoked.
