I have 7-8 months to prepare a concerto for my school's concerto competition, so it's not like I want to go in playing Baa Baa Black Sheep for Flute and Orchestra. Buuuut, I don't think I'd be able to prepare something along the lines of Ibert or Nielsen either. So far I'm looking at Hue, Griffes, and first movement of Reinecke (which might be a problem memorizing, but then again I've got half a year). Any other suggestions of possible pieces I could play? I do not want to do Mozart - I know them both, but there's too much risk of it being put into too much of a Mozart-has-to-be-exactly-like-this mindset that I'd get in the preliminary round (which is judged by the other members of the flute studio), if that makes sense.
