The selected pieces will be announced at the festival’s official website and social networks (Facebook and Instagram). Selected composers will be notified by e-mail.

FMMN is unable to provide funding for travel or accommodations; however, in case the selected composers decide to apply for funding by themselves, we could collaborate by writing invitation letters. Travel is not required.
