If the idea of winning $2500 just because you love jazz sounds perfect and exciting, yet tricky because let’s be honest, no one gives $2500s for nothing; you definitely don’t know about the innovative platform Savage Ticket has created. With the aim to help musicians who have suffered from the pandemic, the platform has already donated $50,000 to The Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musicians’ Emergency Fund from the Kent and Martha Savage Family Charitable Fund. Their dream and vision is the creation of a sustainable music industry capable of continuing to function fully in times of emergency and crises. 

Savage Ticket is trying to develop its innovative platform by gathering those passionate about music to make their dream come true. Their projects create a propitious environment for music professionals, amateurs, music lovers, producers, and venue owners to meet and create contacts to develop new projects together. One of such projects is the ‘HOW I FELL IN LOVE WITH JAZZ’ Video Contest. 

All you need to do to become a part of the contest is shoot a 60-second video in which you talk about your love for jazz. That’s it! Nothing more is required from you, and everyone can participate. The only condition is to love jazz. The rest will be done by the professional jury. Al Di Meola, Dorthaan Kirk, Karrin Allison, Houston Person, Noriko Ueda, famous jazz legends will evaluate the videos and decide who the winners are. 

The main prize is $2500, as mentioned above, but there are other prizes too. Below you can find the prizes for all winners:

  • 1st prize – $2,500
  • 2nd prize – $1,000
  • (100) 3rd prize winners/crowd favorites – $100 each

Hurry to take part in the most exciting jazz event of your life and win the prize! The contest will be held from Oct 1 – 21st of November, so you still have time to submit your video.
