A to Z Foundation (A to Z) and Europe Jazz Network (EJN) hereby issue a call for applications for music projects to be featured at the Bulgarian showcase programme, taking place on 11 and 12 September 2020 at the National Palace of Culture in Sofia, Bulgaria, within the scope of the European Jazz Conference 2020 (EJC).

All professional musicians with Bulgarian nationality are eligible to apply (please check the call for eligibility criteria). Applications can be submitted by individual artists/bands or their representatives. The projects eligible for application must include at least 50% members with Bulgarian nationality and a Bulgarian band leader. Priority shall be given to projects demonstrating international potential with reference to both the content and form of application. The international selection panel shall also take into consideration projects in the making which, however, are not devised as one-off undertakings. The projects must be ready to go on tour.

The EJC International Program Committee will single out six projects to be included in the two-day programme, and outline the schedule of concerts. Each concert will run for max. 30 minutes and will be included in the conference’s booklet and in the overall promotion of the event. Concerts will be attended by international participants to the Conference: promoters, managers and agents, journalists and other music professionals.
