Award ceremony and concert evening
On the eve of jazzahead!, the German Jazz Award will be presented for the second time and for the first time in Bremen.
The German Jazz Award shines the spotlight on the diversity and creativity of the German jazz scene and honors exceptional, artistic and innovative achievements in a national and international context with prizes in 31 categories. The prize winners receive a trophy and prize money of €10,000.
Jazz made in Germany is a globally respected flagship and more than ever at the cutting edge of our time: its protagonists live and communicate cultural diversity on stage and in teaching, in cultural management as well as in the production of recordings. Artists in jazz and improvised music are highly mobile, forming networks and developing new concepts and formats for performance, recording and distribution.
