Much has already been written on the subject of how competition merely serves to level achievement at a level of recognition already experienced (musical deja vu, if you will).  But what if the artist has a unique voice?  What if the composer brings truly new insight into the realm of tone?  
In terms of competition, absence of a standard by which to measure can only mean failure to measure up.
What standard applies to originality, to genius?
