How it works

EBU Members submit recordings from the two previous years by one ensemble of no more than five musicians, with the average age of the musicians not to exceed 30. The semi-finals are made up of 2 rounds, phases One and Two, during which an EBU Jury selects the 4 finalists.

Each of the 4 finalist ensembles then competes during a public set for the Euroradio Jazz Competition Grand Prix, awarded by a Grand Jury made up of professionals of the music sector and EBU radio organization representatives. The Grand Jury also designates one of the performers as Soloist of the Year.

Getting onboard the very best elements of each country's young jazz scene and gender balance constitute high priorities for the EJC.
