About The Camille Awards


Who are the Organisations behind the Awards?

The European Composer and Songwriter Alliance

The European Composer and Songwriter Alliance (ECSA) represents over 50,000 professional composers and songwriters in 26 European countries. With 56-member organisations across Europe, the Alliance speaks for the interests of music creators of art and classical music (contemporary), film and audio-visual music, as well as popular music.

The main objective of the Alliance is to defend and promote the rights of authors of music at the national, European and international levels by any legal means. It advocates for equitable commercial conditions for composers and songwriters and strives to improve social and economic development of music creation in Europe.

ECSA was initiated in 2006 in Vienna within the framework of the Mozartjahr. It was established as an alliance in March 2007 in Madrid with the purpose of becoming the central organization representing the interests of all music creators in Europe, giving every composer and songwriter a European voice.

International Sound & Film Music Festival

Based in Pula, Croatia, surrounded by the 2000 year-old amphitheater and magical seacoast, the International Sound & Film Music Festival (ISFMF) is one of five film music festivals in the world that every year gathers a number of industry professionals, including Oscar-winning composers, sound designers and filmmakers, as well as eminent producers, publicists, agents and students. The primal mission of the festival is to promote the importance of film music and film sound, and to educate about every aspect of it. By organizing a series of panels, master classes and workshops, the festival tends to give not only the mainstream but also the academic approach and create a global network that would continually grow. The festival also organizes an annual competition for Best Original Score in several categories with hundreds of submissions each year.
