Every year except Congress years, The International Alliance for Women in Music (IAWM) hosts an Annual Concert, which presents the winners of an IAWM-sponsored competition. The category of compositions depends most years on the make-up of the performing ensemble and the capabilities of the venue, and other years including 2014 on a special criterion.
THE 2014 ANNUAL CONCERT:
The 2014 criterion specified that “works should be for 2-channel electronic media, with a duration of 10 minutes or less” and “each composer [should] host a public performance of [all the winning] 2014 concert works in their local area.”
The most recent (2014) Annual Concert winners are these members of the International Alliance for Women in Music:
Andrea Clearfield, USA: “Califia and the Trespassers”
Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, USA: “I will play the swan and die in music”
Jessica Rudman, USA: “Not One Would Care”
