Allmänna Sången & Anders Wall Composition Award


For the fifth time, Allmänna Sången and Anders Wall together with Gehrmans Musikförlag AB arrange the Allmänna Sången & Anders Wall Composition Award, a competition for women composers. The prize includes, in addition to a prize sum of SEK 60,000, that the winning piece is premiered by Allmänna Sången and published by Gehrmans Musikförlag AB.

The competition is international and targets women composers irrespective of profession or nationality. All entries will be reviewed by a reputable international jury.


  • Only women composers may participate in the competition.
  • The submitted piece must not have been published or performed previously. 
  • The lyrics for the piece are chosen by the composer and should feel relevant to our times. The lyrics can be in any language, but if a language other than English, Swedish or Latin is chosen, a pronunciation guide must accompany the piece. The pronunciation guide should preferably use the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet).

​All submissions received between May 1 and December 31, 2023, will be anonymously judged by our jury in order to select a winner.
