You should look for the guild of Italian/ Spanish contemporary composers.  These guild exist.  I m not sure there is an BiH one.
In France, the web site of  the French one

 Lots of information and resources there.  I use it when I am looking for a biography.

Contact them to get the information you need on their correspondents in spain and italy.

Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.

I don't qualify for the entry either but I've actually been writing a large scale opera for years  :laugh:

I agree with Karl, seems like a cool competition  8)

One thing.  The title of the project can be a little confusing (translation problems, i guess).  We are not looking for an Opera, but for a musical piece for orchestra (7 mins)

Spineur, thanks a lot for the advice.  I have tried, but they are on holidays now ;-)

All, All the help in disseminationg the project would be appreciated
