Yes. That IS a cheque for EUR 15,000. We reported the victory by Beats n Pieces at the Burghausen European Young Jazz Artists Competition 2011 back in March
Anyone out there interested in participating in the 2012 Competition should know that applications close on November 1st. Here are the Terms and Conditions. Viel Erfolg! As they say in Burghausen.
I'd definitely recommend applying! Its an amazing opportunity for any emerging musicians out there – obviously there's the chance of the prize money but even apart from that the whole experience for us was brilliant and we got loads out of doing it last year. Burghausen itself is beautiful too and the lineup for the festival is always great. Good luck if you're sending off an entry!
