2021 Call for Submissions
Is Now Open !
The Guardian called the competition "The Pulitzer of the New Instrument World," and The New York Times described the "special, otherworldly sound that you can feel permeating your soul" which became the hallmark of the competition. Fast Company explained how Guthman's "Futuristic Instruments will change how we make music," and Atlanta Magazine suggests that "at the Guthman Competition, innovative instruments just might predict the future of music."
The 2021 Guthman Competition will be a fully online event. Finalists will compete for $10,000 in awarded commissions. Viewers will be able to watch and vote for their favorites, while judges choose the winners for a celebration culminating in March of 2021.
