ATS Art Song Composition Award
Advancing quality vocal literature by promoting new works for singers

This annual competition is open to any composer whose submitted work meets the prescribed requirements, and who pays the competition entry fee.
"The purpose of the Art Song Composition Award [formerly the Vocal Composition Award] program... is to stimulate the creation of quality vocal literature through the cooperation of singer and composer."
