In anticipation of the debut of Savage Ticket's new music platform slated for early 2021, Savage Ticket now, with the help of Jazz legends Al Di Meola, Karrin Allyson, Dorthaan Kirk and more, has extended their "How I Fell in Love with Jazz" video contest. The contest, featuring celebrity judges from the jazz world, is accepting submissions through November 21, 2020. The easy-to-enter online contest, open to the public, is a way of sharing the love for jazz, and expanding the reach to jazz fans all around the world.

How I Fell in Love with Jazz Video Contest: Savage Ticket is looking for 60-second video diaries detailing how Jazz fans and performers alike fell in love with Jazz music. Participants don’t need to be performers to enter; they just need to be a lover of Jazz music. Simply pull out your recording device and tell Savage Ticket how your passion for Jazz came to be. Savage Ticket is looking for fun and heartfelt stories!

1st Prize will receive $2,500! 2nd Prize will receive $1,000! An additional 100 entries will receive $100. Initial voting will be open to the public for the length of the contest with the top 102 entries moving on to the prize round. Once the contest has closed, those top entries will be reviewed by Savage Ticket’s world-class panel of judges to determine 1st and 2nd prize-winning videos.

In addition to hosting the contest, Savage Ticket has made a generous donation from the Kent and Martha Savage Family Foundation to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musicians' Emergency Fund, and there will be a donation link provided on our website if folks wish to contribute.
