The NATS National Music Theater Competition (NMTC) has completed its preliminary rounds, resulting in the selection of 24 national semifinalists. Beginning with the 2018 competition, the NMTC semifinal and final rounds will be held in New York City, in proximity to a wide audience of artist managers and industry professionals.

The first prize winner is awarded more than $5,000 in prizes in addition to a concert at the 55th NATS National Conference in Las Vegas on June 22, 2018. Second prize is awarded more than $2,500 plus a $500 gift certificate from Hal Leonard Corporation. Third and fourth prizes are provided through the NATS Foundation, including the Louise Lerch Prize ($1,000) and the Bill Hayes Prize ($750).

The semifinal and final rounds will take place during the NATS Winter Workshop in New York City on Saturday, January 6, 2018. Admission to watch the NMTC final round is included in the package for those who are attending the Winter Workshop, which will be held at the Roosevelt Hotel, January 5-7, 2018.
