The winners will be picked based on the effectiveness of the music in how it relates to the pictures it has been composed for, as well as the originality and novelty of the music. A panel of judges will pick five finalists in late June 2007, with the winners being announced at the International Film Music Conference in Ubeda, Spain, in July 2007.
Winners in the first three categories will receive a commemorative plaque for their efforts, as well as the opportunity to have their work showcased at a special microsite affiliated with www.bsospirit.com. The winner of the Best Young Composer Award will be formally invited to take part as a speaker on the "Emerging Talents Panel" at the next International Film Music Conference in the City of Ubeda.
