SABAM Jazz Awards
On July 7 the SABAM Jazz Awards will be awarded at Gent Jazz Festival. A prize with the value of 10,000 Euros will be assigned to the winner of the category “Established Value”. The future is naturally kept in mind: the winner of the category “Young Talent” will be allocated a prize of 5,000 Euros, in collaboration with ‘Jeugd en Muziek’. The goal of this prize money ist to boast the musical career of the young musicians.
Besides these two prizes, Sabam also awards the ‘Muze van Sabam’. This is an additional award, assigned to a Belgian jazz personality who has used his or her reputation in order to support the world of jazz.
