On the 21st of January the six finalists for B-Jazz International Contest 2016 will be anounced.

The winner receives a money prize of 2 000 euros and the winning composition will be interpreted and performed live by the finalists of B-Jazz International Contest on the 18th and 19th of March 2016. The best interpretation will be rewarded with another prize.
