Jazz Award: Apply now!

Have you got what it takes to take your musical career to the highest level of European Jazz? If you live in Europe, here’s your chance. 

The winner of this competition will get a remarkable once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for International ‘live’ exposure – at Europe’s top Jazz festivals – and to benefit from the powerful marketing and PR expertise of the award-winning artist agency AIR ARTIST AGENCY, whose director Burkhard Hopper has a long-standing experience in introducing new artists. For 9 years he was running the RISING STARS concert series, which – among others – introduced artists such as Diana Krall, Brad Mehldau, Nicholas Payton, Jane Monheit and Esbjörn Svensson.

On November 7th 2017, a 5-person jury chaired by Mikhail Fridman and made up of internationally renowned artists, high-profile journalists, and industry executives (representing both the creative and marketing aspects of the decision), will gather together to discuss and ultimately select a winner.
