B-Jazz International Jazz Contest 2015
B-Jazz International Jazz Contest is open for submissions to take part in their 2015 competition, with a deadline of November 30th 2014.
The competition is open to musicians aged 30 or under (band members must not exceed 40 years of old, band leader must be 30 or under). Bands submit an online application (HERE) and upload three recordings, one of which must be an interpretation of a standard and one must be an original composition. A panel selects 4 finalists from these submissions to take part in the finals to be held in Belgium in March 2015. B-Jazz provides contributions to travel for these finalists (1000euro per band) and all backline equipment is provided.
There are cash prizes attached to 1st to 6th place, plus extra awards given to best bassist, soloist etc. Winners are also invited to perform at part of the festival the following year.
