Overview of PML Submission Process

Call for UIL Large Ensemble Submissions

The University Interscholastic League accepts new large ensemble submissions for inclusion in the UIL Prescribed Music List from September 1 through December 1.

The submission portal for the 2022-2023 school year is now open. 

This document serves as the repertoire guide for the approximately 500,000 music students and 3,800 performing organizations in the state of Texas.  You can view the current PML at:

http://www.uiltexas.org/music/pml

The selection committees welcome the opportunity to review any current year releases for concert band, choir, string and full orchestra. Music published prior to the current year will not be considered unless it has not been recently submitted. Additions to the list will appear in the PML in the fall of the year following consideration.

As part of a Diversity Initiative in music literature, the UIL encourages the submission of works from underrepresented composer groups and/or cultures. The University Interscholastic League (UIL) does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs.

Publishers are requested to use the following procedures for submissions:

Concert Music for Band, Choir, and Orchestra

Large ensemble concert music will be submitted electronically. The following link will take you to the portal where you can submit a pdf of scores plus a link to online recordings. If no recording link is available you will have the option of submitting an mp3 with the score.

Go to: http://www.uiltexas.org/pml-submissions and follow the steps prescribed on the submission page. 
(Submissions link will be active beginning September 1st.  Deadline for submissions is December 1st.)

The following requirements will be in effect for all submissions.

  1. Scores must be engraved, camera ready and available for distribution.
