A professional jury consisting of Seung-Won Oh, Pierre Jodlowski, and Willem Jeths has drawn up a shortlist of five composers for the 2016 Gaudeamus Award, an international prize eligible to composers under the age of 30 consisting of a composition commission worth € 5,000. American composers David Bird (b. 1990) and Anthony Vine (b. 1988) are among the five chosen from over 175 scores from 28 different countries submitted. The other composers chosen are James O’Callaghan (b. 1988, Canada), Shih-Wei Lo (b. 1985, Taiwan), and Giulio Colangelo (b. 1986, Italy). The Gaudeamus Award has been conferred annually since 1957.
