As part of its Tribute Series 2, SMCQ and Circuit are working in tandem on a second international “Tribute” essay competition. During each “Tribute Series” (Série Hommage), Circuit publishes a special issue, devoted to the Tribute honoree. This issue will also feature the winning essay.

This year, writers, musicians and musicologists are invited to submit an essay on Gilles Tremblay (5000 words, English or French). The jury, consisting of eminent composers and musicologists and chaired by the composer Jean Lesage, will meet in April 2010 to select the winning essay, slated for publication in Circuit’s September 2010 issue. The winner will receive a $1000 prize, plus the usual contributor’s honorarium. Thanks to their vast network of contacts, the SMCQ and Circuit will ensure that the winning essay receives wide international circulation.

  • Entry deadline: March 1st, 2010 (editorial standards can be found on Circuit web site).
