ISCM arranges other activities than WNMD throughout the year. These are the ISCM Young Composer Awards, ISCM-VICC Composer in Residency program and ISCM Collaborative Events that are activities co-organised by multiple ISCM Members.
ISCM Young Composer Award
The ISCM Young Composer Award has been presented each year since 2002 to a composer under the age of 35 whose work is performed at the current festival. The winner gets a monetary prize and a commission for a new piece to be performed at a future edition of the ISCM World New Music Days.
The ISCM and the VICC – Visby International Centre for Composers (in Visby, on the island of Gotland, Sweden) have an annual co-operation program: the ISCM-VICC Composer in Residency Program. In this program up to 6 composers per year are offered free accommodation and unrestricted use of an appropriate composing studio at the Centre for a period of 4 weeks.
