Music Video Competition 2020!

Sören Sieg Music Video Competition 2020: Since I saw YELLOW SUBMARINE from The Beatles as a child, I've been fascinated by music videos. Be it that you can watch the musicians exactly while playing; be it that the video creates its own visual world that reflects the emotions of the music. Four years ago I cut my first music videos about Wakati njema, and now I'm running my first music video competition!

The most creative video for a movement of one of my trios, quartets or quintets will be awarded. The submission deadline is September 1st, 2020.
The first prize is 2000 euros and a new composition for the winning ensemble, the second prize is 1250 euros, the third prize is 750 euros. The jury will include the recorder player Ebba-Maria Künning-Zeijl, the filmmaker Claire Walka, and me. For more information please click on the logo "Sören Sieg Music Video Competition" above.
I look forward to your contributions!
