Toru Takemitsu Composition Award

This Award is unique in that each year only one judge (without committee) is responsible for the outcome. Each year, the judge examines the submitted scores and selects by his own judgment the compositions to be awarded. Our foundation appoints 3 composers to judge the competition in 3-year cycles.
For the first cycle, Mr. Takemitsu himself chose the first three composers to head the competition.
After Mr. Takemitsu’s passing, the initial 3 composers nominated their 3 successors.

Since 2003, the selection of judges is made by ballot among the Foundation’s Advisors Committee (whose members have included the late Hiroyuki Iwaki, Oliver Knussen, Kent Nagano, Kazushi Ono, Simon Rattle, Esa-Pekka Salonen and the late Hiroshi Wakasugi) and the previous judges.
