Cantamessa Creates Unique Jewelry Award for Made In New York Jazz Competition
Winning a competition comes with a certain amount of prestige, and winning just got more prestigious for future Made In New York Jazz Competitions. Among the top prizes will be a jewel-encrusted award to commemorate the honor of winning the annual online jazz contest. This new award is in addition to the cash prize and performance honors bestowed upon competition winners.
The Made In New York Jazz competition is partnering with Cantamessa - a world-famous jewelry house - who will make the award from gold, diamonds and other jewels. The value of winning the Made In New York Jazz competition essentially doubles with the addition of the prize from Cantamessa.
