  • Upload your title through SMP Press from now until July 4th.
    • Add the phrase "2017 Choral Contest Entry" to your item description.
    • Titles uploaded prior to the contest submission period are not eligible.
  • Sell as much as possible from July 12th - August 22nd, 2017. Finalists will be determined by the 5 top-selling arrangements in each category based on total sales revenue.

  • Finalists from each category will be judged by Lorenz Choral Editors, who will determine the overall winners in each category. (Please note: The Lorenz Corporation is not agreeing to publish any contest entries.)
