About the ceremony
Central to the ceremony is the celebration of emerging European musical talent. During a lively sixty minutes show designed by Guy Weizman (Noord Nederlands Toneel), the winners will receive an award and an amazing prize package focused at boosting their international careers. After the ceremony, all nominees present in Groningen will perform live across the city as an official part of the ESNS festival.
There are eight jury awards to be handed out during the ceremony. Each winner selected by the jury receives a prize worth € 10.000- funded by the EU programme Creative Europe, to be spent towards promoting their international careers. A total of € 7.500 of the prize package covers all expenses made for promotion and/or touring. Additionally,
