In submitting this work, you are allowing the Sydney University Piano Society to replicate it for the purposes of adjudication, and are giving the society the rights to perform it for one premiere concert. You are also giving the Chau Chak Wing Museum the rights to replicate the winning composition for the purposes of displaying it as a part of their exhibition during the time of the course of its run. All other rights to the work will be yours. The society maintains the right, along with the Conservatorium Students' Association, to adjudicate a shortlist that is to be presented to an adjudicator of their choice to determine the winner of the competition. No correspondence will be entered into once the winner is announced.

*The University of Sydney Piano Society is committed to supporting young Australian composers, and ensuring that everyone has equal access to every opportunity, particularly in the difficult era we are currently living in. If you believe that a $15 fee is prohibitively expensive and may put you in a position of financial hardship, please feel free to waive your submission fee. This is a self-reported system, so we trust entrants to do the right thing.
