PGNiG Transatlantyk Festival is a festival of ideas. Perhaps the most important of them is to enable young talents to have a good way to start an international career. Therefore, for the sixth time, we announce prestigious composition competitions: Transatlantyk Film Music Competition and Transatlantyk Instant Composition Contest.

Transatlantyk Instant Composition Contest is a spectacular and unique contest of simultaneous composition and synchronous improvisation to a motion picture, on piano. Young artists who have the talent to improvise and express emotions through the instrument, find a unique challenge here. They watch a short film and then, on stage, in front of the audience must create a composition connected to the picture. They see the film for the first time during the auditions. Immediately after watching the picture, they go on stage and ad hoc create music to the film they have just seen. This art requires extraordinary musical and emotional imagination, as well as exceptional technical proficiency.  
Transatlantyk Instant Composition Contest has two stages. The first stage consists of auditions, open to all enrolled participants. For the finale, the second part of auditions, the jury selects 10 most creative young musicians. Many outstanding and famous personalities sat on the jury in previous years, among others Rolfe Kent, George Clinton, Roy Conli, Mark Marder, Zachary Matz, Leszek Możdżer, Peter Golub, Dave Porter, Vasco Hexel, et al. Along with the title of the Transatlantyk Instant Composer 2016, the winner will receive:   
  • Transatlantyk Instant Composer Award – First Prize – 15 000 PLN   
Winners of the second and third prize will receive:
  • Transatlantyk Instant Composer Award – Second Prize – 7 500 PLN 
  • Transatlantyk Instant Composer Award – Third Prize – 5 000 PLN  
Dates:   
  • June 16th - Application submission and registration fee payment deadline - ATTENTION! THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN POSPONED TO JUNE 20TH
  • June 28th - First stage of the auditions eliminations
