The Capital Jazz Challenge is a live performance competition for unsigned contemporary jazz artists who have not previously been signed to a major record label. All entrants must submit a video or link to online video with their EPK submission. Videos will be reviewed by a panel of judges, and finalists will be selected on the basis of artist's skill level, stage presence, and overall presentation.

Selected finalists will attend the finals competition on June 5, 2009. All finalists will receive a $500 appearance fee and complimentary general admission to the Capital Jazz Fest on June 6 and 7. Finalists will get to rehearse with the Capital Jazz house band in the afternoon, and then perform at the competition that evening. Each competitor will be allotted a 15-minute set with the house band. The winner will be selected by a panel of judges.

The winner will receive a $5,000 prize and will get to perform a 30-minute set on the main stage at the 17th Annual Capital Jazz Fest on Sunday, June 7, 2009. This is an amazing opportunity for any jazz musician to compete for a great cash prize and a chance to perform at a top tier jazz festival.
