About the Competition:

The Made in New York Competition, which launched in 2013, is international online jazz competition. Contestants submitted video clips which were posted to the competition website, and the winners were decided by popular vote, committee members as well as a panel of judges: jazz greats Lenny White, Joe Lovano, and Randy Brecker. The contest grand prize was a cash award of over $3000 + 10% from entry of each participant which makes the price constantly growing, along with the opportunity to travel to New York to headline the Made in New York Jazz Competition Gala Concert. The second and third-place prizes in 2013 were provided by  KAWAI USA—the future of the piano®— the elegant KAWAI ES7 Portable Digital Piano and the powerful KAWAI MP6 Professional Stage Piano to the Competition’s second and third-place finishers
