This year’s deadline for members to submit original music and theatrical works to be considered for publication or performance by the Church is March 31, 2010.
Selected music is presented in the Church Music Festival, and selected scripts and poetry are shared in the Cultural Arts Submission Presentation. Occasionally works are selected for future publication on the Church Web site or in the Church magazines.
Music submissions include songs, children’s songs, hymns, anthems, hymn arrangements, and instrumental and other works.
Cultural arts submissions may be theatrical scripts including dramas, comedies, and musicals. Poetry and oratorios with performance value have also been accepted.
The works submitted should be suitable for use in Church units, teach gospel principles in uplifting ways, be doctrinally correct, and accurate if historically based.
For more information, call 801-240-6492.
Guidelines can be found at www.lds.org/churchmusic. Click on Music, then Other Music, then Church Music Submissions.
