National Jazz Awards

 Australia’s Most Prestigious Jazz Award

Designed to provide encouragement and exposure to young musicians (up to 35 years of age), Australia’s most prestigious jazz competition, the National Jazz Awards, has been a highlight each year since the Festival began in 1990. Each year ten finalists are chosen to perform, for the chance to win up to $12,000, an internations showcase at Amersfoort Jazz Festival and valuable opportunities to gain industry recognition and boost their careers. With past winners including now prominent artists such as Barney McAll, James Muller, Phil Slater, Scott Tinkler, Michelle Nicolle and Stephen Magnusson, the benefits of succeeding in the National Jazz Awards are far reaching.


The 2018 National Jazz Awards information will be available soon.
