Composers can put their own work forward for the Original Music category, but to be eligible, more than 50 percent of the music in a film must have been originally composed for it.

The deadline for entries is Wednesday 14 November. Work can be submitted via an online entry form on the BAFTA website:,131,BA.html

After this date, the list of films entered in this category will be circulated to BAFTA’s Music Chapter to allow them an opportunity to highlight any notable omissions.

When submitting their entry, composers will be asked to provide some basic information about the film and hand over a music cue sheet, marked up to show which cues were originally composed for the film, to verify the percentage of original music.

The next Orange British Academy Film Awards will take place in London on 10 February 2013.
