These questions are quickly answered if you visit the PAE website:

In addition to the complete work, please include a 2 - 3 minute excerpt
that effectively portrays an introductory summation of the essential
elements explored in the whole piece. This edited extraction can serve as a
compressed remix of different musical areas of the longer composition or
simply choose a continuous representative slice. This helps the jury to
deal with large quantities of submissions in a focused judicial manner.
