During last year’s lockdown, I came across an advertisement for this competition. I took a look at the website and I found the contest really interesting and immediately decided to subscribe to the video games category. I think it is important to take part in composition contests, especially if they are relevant, like FMC is, as you have the opportunity to challenge yourself at a professional level and be judged by experts from all over the world. I hope that FMC will be supported and last for a long time, because these initiatives motivate, encourage and give some visibility to composers who constantly work “behind the scenes”.

“I am very honoured to receive this award and I wish all future participants all the best, it is nice to be recognized once in a while but what matters most is to keep focused on writing the best music you can write, and constantly seek to improve and hone your craft. Thank you once more to the FMC team and esteemed jury for this award, for creating such a meaningful platform for composers to share their work with friends all over the world.”

Thank You so much FMC! I feel extremely blessed and honored to have Placed 3rd in the Instrumental Music category! Every person has a story and every story has a sound. As film composers, it is our responsibility to explore these stories with the limitless possibilities of music. I am so grateful to be apart of this network of amazing composers and I’m looking forward to the future with the FMC community.
Taking part in FMC has been a wonderful experience for me, not only for the result that I have achieved, but because I had the chance to see the work of other professionals and confront myself with them. It’s an experience that I would definitively recommend to anyone interested in pursuing a music career. I hope that the opportunities offered by FMC may expand in the future, in the form of a community where music professionals can share their work and expertise with others.

I am truly honored to have finished Third in this international competition, especially considering that the jury of the FMC 2021 is very respectable. These contests motivate a lot and help those who, like me, do not have many means to compare themselves with other artists and have their works evaluated. For this, I want to thank Gioria and all the organizers warmly.

I signed up to FMC 2021 without thinking twice. An important contest that has helped me to compare myself with the composers from the whole world, a unique opportunity! FMC2021 has given my music the chance to bring the message I wanted to all the people that have seen and listened to my work, a message of hope. However, I would not have expected Albanuova to be classified as the overall winner in the Films, tv series, videos with original music category !! It was a great thrill! I want to thank the whole FMC team, the jury for the commitment and the opportunity they give to music of all kinds. The contest is something unique And I would like to invite all composers to participate in this contest and have a great opportunity for professional and cultural growth.”
