Made in New York is the first online jazz competition with a goal to enable musicians from all over the world, regardless their geographical distance from New York, to show and prove their talent in front of top American musicians.
It is enough to post and register your video within one of seven categories and the decision about the winner will be made in November 2013. The winner will be chosen by eminent jazz musicians, drummer Lanny White, trumpeter Randy Brecker, and saxophonist Joe Lovano.
The winner of the competition will receive prize money and payed travel costs as well as accommodation in New York where he/she will perform within the main program of the Made In New York Jazz Festival with prominent jazz musicians.
