JFC has just announced the fifth call for scores (I believe it is the last call) for the Asian Music Festival 2010. The selected pieces will be featured in the concert called “Digital Music in Asia” to be held at 5:30 pm on 2nd October 2010 in the 6th Hall of the Tokyo University of the Arts:
Category A: Electroacoustic music of no longer than 15 minutes for no more than 8 channels with live performance of one instrumentalist. The festival will provide the instrumentalist. Pieces with a Japanese instrument are recommended (as it matches the theme of the festival).

Category C: Category A or B with visual.
The organizer will provide the following in the concert venue:

In case of more than 2 audio channels, the composer shall submit the audio files of all channels (in AIFF or WAV file) on a CD or DVD.
