Croatian Composers' Society (Croatian: Hrvatsko društvo skladatelja, HDS) is a professional organization of composers in Croatia.

HDS organizes the Music Biennale Zagreb, an international festival of contemporary music, and Zagrebfest, a festival of Croatian popular music.[1]

HDS is a member of the Confédération Internationale des Sociétés d´Auteurs et Compositeurs (CISAC), Bureau International de l'Edition Mecanique (BIEM), International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM), European Composers and Songwriters Alliance (ECSA) and European Composers Forum (ECF).[1]

The society has approximately 300 full and 7000 associate members.[1] The full membership is available to composers, musicologists and music writers, whose applications are processed by a panel of members who evaluate the professional, artistic, or scientific merit of the applicant's work.[2] The associate membership is available to music copyright holders - both individuals and legal persons - and entitles them to a share in the distribution of the government-collected blank media tax.[3][4]
