Following feedback from last year's competition we will email all applicants once all submissions have been judged

I don’t have a YouTube account, do I need one?
You will need to set up a YouTube account in order to submit to this competition. If you already have a Gmail email address, simply login to YouTube using this
Do views and subscribers count?
Not at all, the competition is about your skills as a composer
Can you give me feedback on my entry?
If you’re looking for feedback we’d suggest sharing your submission on our Forum, our community is very supportive and encouraging. We would love to provide feedback to everyone that enters but the number of entries we receive in competitions makes that extremely difficult to do!
Can I collaborate on my entry?
We can only accept one entry per person and one person per entry
Can I use my submission in my portfolio/CV?
You’re welcome to use your submission, providing you clearly state that it was for a competition and was not commissioned, or endorsed by either Netflix, Shondaland Media or Spitfire Audio
Do I need to use Spitfire Audio sounds in my music to enter this competition?
Nope! You don’t have to include Spitfire libraries in your score – but you must be the legal owner of any sounds, sample libraries, or virtual instruments you use
Can I alter the Dialogue & FX Audio?
You can reduce the overall volume of the original Dialogue & FX audio but volume automation or audio processing are not permitted
I’m not good at mixing, what do I do?
This is a scoring competition not a mixing competition so you won’t be marked down for a bad mix, but it’s obviously easier to judge a score that sounds good so give yourself time once you’ve finished your composition to concentrate on your mix
Can I make reference to other scores in my score? We cannot accept any entries that break copyright law
Where can I find the competition rules?
All of the rules are available at www.spitfireaudio.com/bridgerton/rules
