What's On

Queensland Music Festival


Queensland Music Festival's Score IT! is a state-wide film-scoring competition open to all secondary school students in Queensland. The competition challenges young composers to create an original composition to accompany a short film produced by Griffith Film School.

Based on year level, students compete in either Score IT! Junior (Years 7-10) or Senior (Years 11-12) by composing and recording a soundtrack using instruments of their choice. The more challenging Score IT! Plus (Years 7-12) is open to all secondary students, requiring composition for specific instruments and submission of a written score.

Entrants are judged by an expert panel including Katie Noonan, and award-winning screen composer and orchestrator, Cameron Patrick, known for orchestrating films such as Spider-Man: Homecoming for Marvel, Star Trek Into Darkness for Paramount; and Jurassic World for Universal; as well as industry leaders from Griffith Film School, Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University and Queensland School of Film and TV.

Score IT! finalists will be invited in July 2018, to take part in a number of composition workshops and masterclasses led by senior lecturers and practitioners from the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, and also take part in a half day workshop with top video and digital school, Queensland School of Film and TV and, at the concluding awards ceremony, the winning Score IT! Plus composition will be performed by students from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University. Prizes will also be awarded to all finalists.
