BBC Doctor Who Blog - Doctor Who ‘Create a Soundtrack’ Competition for the Doctor Who Proms

via the BBC Doctor Who Blog:

Music has always been a vital part of Doctor Who and BBC Learning and BBC Proms today announced a competition to inspire all UK secondary school students (aged 11-16) to get involved with this side of the show. The challenge is simple – we’re asking young people to create a short soundtrack to accompany a scene from the Doctor’s adventures.

Entries will be judged by top composers, including Ben Foster (conductor and orchestrator for Doctor Who and composer for Torchwood) and winners will be mentored by professional composers. The winning soundtracks will be showcased within the Doctor Who Proms on 13 July and 14 July, 2013… but hurry! The closing date for entries is Friday, 24 May, 2013.

Feel you need help? Don’t worry! We’ve got a special film full of great pointers along with a suite of videos that provide an insider’s guide to music technology and don’t forget to watch the two scenes we’re asking your soundtrack to accompany. And if you need more inspiration, take a look at where your music could be heard… The winners will have their soundtracks premiered at the Doctor Who Proms on 13 July and at the following day’s Doctor Who Proms.

You can find all the information, clips and files on our competition page. You can download and fill in the all-important application form and please read the terms and conditions which also include details about age groups, how schools should get involved and what teams are allowed to take part.

The Competition is open to all UK secondary school students (including those resident in the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.

Even if you don’t qualify, the videos from the Competition page are worth a view and their intro to Music Technology clips are interesting.
