We are pleased to announce that we are now a signatory to the Music Publishers Association (MPA) Code of Fair Practice (revised for 2012) agreed between Composers, Publishers and users of printed music.
As such a specific permission has been granted regarding photocopying music as follows:
Adjudicator Copy – A person performing a work at our festivals in front of an adjudicator may make one copy for the adjudicator provided that the performer has already purchased his/her own copy and that the copy made is retained and destroyed by the adjudicator immediately after the festival.
The copy must be marked with the following “Adjudicator copy. Destroy after use”.
The following link provides a full list of all music publishers who have agreed to adhere to the standards set out in the MPA’s Code of Fair Practice
Important: This permission only applies to the Adjudicator copy and all other copies used for the performance (e.g. by the performer and/or accompanist) must be originals.
