Just for Fun-Maps of 2017 Entries
We're looking forward to introducing you to the 2017 winners and finalists very soon. In the meantime, we always find it fascinating to see from which countries composers submitted entries. We're excited to see entries from five of the six inhabited continents this year!
For the purposes of this map, we used the address of submission although many composers are living in a country outside the country of their birth. For example, Minzou Lu, honorable mention in the flute duo category, is Chinese but lives in Germany so she has been recorded in Germany.
Below is the world map. Although it is not possible to select them as discrete countries, we received entries from Hong Kong and Scotland. It may be also be difficult to see Israel.
We're also excited to show the breakdown by US state this year. It's pretty exciting to see composers from all around the country entering our competition!
Finally, we're happy to share a map detailing the homes of the winning and finalist composers. IWe are so grateful that the contest provides the opportunity for us to become familiar with composers from all over the world! We know we probably would not otherwise have the opportunity to become familiar with their wonderful music! Note: we were unable to indicate this but this year, there was both a winner (JP Merz) and a finalist (Julie Barwick) from California.
