The contest - which has a deadline of May 31st, 2008 - invites composers from around the world to submit an orchestral piece completed in NOTION software for a chance to win a recording session with the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road, reports David Davies.

Under the terms of the competition - won in its inaugural year by Inal Bilsel - the Grand Prize victor and one guest will be transported to record the winning composition with the London Symphony Orchestra (the same ensemble featured in NOTION's built-in sound library) at Abbey Road. The winner will also receive hotel accommodation while in London and $2,500 (_1,212) in cash. The competition panel of composers and conductors will also select three finalists, each winning $1,000, and nine runner-ups, who will receive their choice of NOTION software.

Original compositions must be 5-10 minutes in length and created in NOTION software. Full rules and guidelines are available through the link below.

Lori Jarrett, CEO of NOTION Music, tells PSN-e: "NOTION Music expects the 2008 Realize Music Challenge to follow the success of last year's challenge, inspiring many more talented and creative submissions. We look forward to the participation of musicians of all ages, levels and geographic backgrounds. The RMC offers an excellent opportunity to create a masterpiece and compete to have it played by one of the most famous orchestras in the world, and we encourage everyone to tap into their inner musician and take a chance at becoming the next great composer."
