Peter Whittingham Jazz Awards 2015 open

The Peter Whittingham Jazz Award recognises and supports exciting emerging jazz talent. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, it has helped to launch the careers of some of the UK's top jazz stars, many with Northern links, including Phil Meadows, Roller Trio and Stretch Trio.

The £5,000 award is open to UK-based solo artists and bands in the first two years of their professional career or who are studying on a higher education jazz course.

An expert in survival medicine, Peter Whittingham was also a pianist who enjoyed the music of Gershwin, Porter, Sondheim, Bernstein, Shearing and Peterson. After his death in 1987 his family set up this award in his memory – and their connection with the award continues.

Auditions will take place at The Premises Studios, Hackney, on Wenesday 2 December 2015.

Deadline for applications: Monday 2 November at 5.00pm. For more information and application details, visit our website.
