The 7 Virtual Jazz Club
continues its worldwide search for emerging and underrecognized creative musicians from all ages and backgrounds. The winner will receive € 4,000, while another € 2,000 will go to the best new talent (the “Best new talent” is a musician—soloist or band member—who is considered the best musician by the jury, even if he or she doesn't reach the finals) and the musicians who tally the most popular votes by the web community will receive € 1,000.
To enter the contest, soloists and groups pay a small registration fee and submit a video (maximum seven minutes) of their performance. Entries will be judged by a panel of international jazz experts (meet the experts
