The annual BBC Proms Inspire Young Composers' Competition for 12-18 year olds provides what most composers only dream of: the chance to have their music performed by professional musicians at the BBC Proms and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Not only this - winners also receive a BBC commission for a high-profile performance and are mentored throughout the process by a professional composer
