6. What are the categories?
  • Under 25:
    The Under 25 category is open to all musicians who are aged 25 (or younger) and that are not managed by a promotion or record production agency.
  • Pros & Amateurs:
    All the other musicians that don’t comply with the Under 25’s category requirements will compete in the Pros & Amateurs’ category.

N.B.: If a trio band has one member of 25 years old (or younger) and two members of 26 years old, if the latters aren’t managed by someone or are not affiliated with a promotion or record production agency, the band can compete in the under 25’s category. So, THERE’S FLEXIBILITY.
