Each year as part of the University of Toronto New Music Festival, student composers are selected for prizes recognizing their incredible works. The Karen Kieser Prize in Canadian Music is awarded each year to a graduate student in composition whose work is judged to be especially promising. The Ann H. Atkinson Prize in Composition is awarded to any undergraduate or graduate Faculty of Music student in recognition of the most outstanding electro-acoustic composition in the competition. New this year is the Piano Trio Composition Competition, which is awarded by the Faculty of Music and the Bedford Trio, the current Irene R. Miller Piano Trio in Residence.
