Made in New York is fusing social media and jazz music in ways never seen before. More and more entertainment is being delivered online, and they seek to bring this trend to a modern jazz competition and festival. By harnessing the unique nature of the Internet to bring people together, this will be the first in an annual series of competitions that will shatter geographic barriers and bring the spotlight to rest on the finest young jazz musicians of our era, wherever they may hail from.
You will have the opportunity to perform in front of and be judged by true Jazz icons, a true once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIVE IN THE US TO TAKE PART!
The winner of the Made In New York Jazz Festival will see their musical career take off like a rocket ship. They will immediately pocket a large cash purse of $3000, plus 10% of the registration fees, which alone will give the winner enough capital to buy equipment, log some recording time, or just pay the bills while taking some time to work on new album.
More important than any amount of money is the international recognition the winner will receive. Our contest winner will be flown to New York City, on an all-expenses paid trip, to participate as a headline performer in the Made In New York Jazz Festival Concert, followed by huge exposure.
Grand Finale Will Be Held In November 2013!
