ISCM/IAMIC Young Composer Award
The ISCM/IAMIC Young Composer Award, initiated in 2002, is awarded annually to a composer under 35 years of age whose work is performed during the festival. The award includes a commission for a new work which will be played during next year's ISCM World New Music Days.
In 2011, Ms. Chou was chosen from 20 eligible candidates from around the world.
