The aim of B-Jazz International Contest is to discover, promote and stimulate young, ambitious jazzmusicians from all over the world.

B-Jazz International Contest is organised by Muziekmozaïek – in collaboration with the cultural center 30CC and OPEK – as part of the Leuven Jazz festival.

Based on the qualifications and final, the jury will choose the winners. Each winner will receive a (cash) prize, the winner of the first prize will get the chance to play the Getxo Jazz Festival (Spain) and in addition there are prizes for best soloist, best bassplayer and a prize for the best performance of the mandatory composition.

By encouraging young talented musicians and to grant them the attention and support they need, B-Jazz holds on to its main ambition: to encourage jazz (musicians) and contribute to the cultural development and future of our society.
