Global Music Charity In Place Of War Partners with Score Relief 2022
London, 13 January 2022 – In Place Of War has been named official charity partner to the Score Relief
2022 international film scoring competition.
In Place Of War, the global organisation that uses creativity, especially music, to bring positive change
and provide a voice to marginalised communities in areas of conflict in 26 countries, has been announced
as official charity partner for this year’s Score Relief film scoring competition. Described as, “the
composing contest with a heart”, Score Relief was founded in 2020 by The Cue Tube, a UK-based global
community for composers for film, TV and gaming.
Score Relief is a free-to-enter scoring contest, open to composers worldwide, offering a choice of two
engaging visual content clips for which composers can create music. Judges include Oscar-winning
composer Mychael Danna. The winning composer will have their score performed and recorded by
Northern Film Orchestra. This year’s competition also includes a prize pool worth more than $35,000,
thanks to the generosity of more than 21 music industry partners including Native Instruments, Orchestral
Tools, Spitfire Audio and others. Composers will also have the chance to win money-can’t-buy
opportunities, such as a one-to-one feedback session with Carlos Rafael Rivera, Emmy and SCL winning
composer of scores including the huge Netflix hit, The Queen’s Gambit.
The competition is also used to shine a light on Score Relief’s crowdfunder, which this year will support In
Place of War through voluntary donations by competition entrants and those in the industry supporting the
cause. Funds raised will support the charity’s #HackMusic music education program, offering mentoring
and education to artists across the Global South on developing their craft, making a living from music and
hacking the music industry. Last year’s competition raised more than $15,000 in donations, which
organisers hope to smash with the 2022 edition.
In Place Of War CEO and Creative Director, Ruth Daniel, says, “We’re so happy to be partnering with
Score Relief 2022. Giving composers worldwide the amazing opportunity of having their score recorded
by a prestigious film orchestra is so aligned with our #HackMusic program, opening up access to the
music industry to artists across the Global South. So it’s completely fitting that the Score Relief
crowdfunder will support that initiative.”
Score Relief and The Cue Tube Founder, Bryan Waters, says, “I’m really excited to be partnering with
In Place Of War this year, not just as a charity partner, but opening the door to potential artistic
collaboration between our community and those supported by their work. Huge thanks to our sponsors
and judges, making Score Relief 2022 what it is. Good luck to all participants and thank you for your
generosity in supporting our fundraiser!”
Entries to Score Relief 2022 are now being accepted until January 31st. Entry is free and open to all
composers and aspiring composers worldwide. Full details and Entry Pack can be found on The Cue
