We are passionate about supporting emerging as well as established screen composers and our membership feel similarly. By drawing on past experiences and sharing what we know the entire composing community becomes stronger and more resilient, so please join us!
Benefits of Joining
Arguably the most important benefit of joining the AGSC is the support, shared knowledge, experience and networking opportunities available to you as a member of our community. If you need any advice or assistance please, contact us. If we can't help directly then we will put you in contact with another member who can!
Members also enjoy professional development opportunities via seminars, masterclasses or workshops which are offered several times a year. Members also receive special 'Members-only' emails where we alert you to important information or changes in the industry and membership grants you exclusive access to our Rates Survey.
Finally, behind the scenes your membership enables us to advocate for the entire community through representations to governmental agencies and organisations, funding bodies and also through liaising with our colleagues in other guilds or associations such as Screen Australia, the Screen Producers Association (SPA), the Australian Screen Sound Guild (ASSG), Australian Screen Editors (ASE), the Australian Writers Guild (AWG) and Ausfilm.
Membership is open to all screen composers who are Australian citizens or residents. Annual membership rates are:
We welcome students of screen composition or those studying in related disciplines interested in entering this career and can offer you all the support, networking and professional development opportunities outlined above.
We welcome new or emerging screen composers or recent graduates who wish to join our community. Associate members have all the benefits of Full membership but are unable to be listed in our Members Directory, nor vote in or nominate for board positions. No screen credits are required for this level of membership.
Full members are entitled to all our benefits, but are also able to be included in our Members Directory which is routinely accessed by content producers wishing to find a composer. Full members are also able to vote in and nominate for board positions and may attend board meetings. Two screen credits are required to gain Full membership.
Becoming a financial member enables us to better support you, our community, with more events, seminars or other functions or services.
