Dear Beyond Music family,
Last week we met for the first time with our Mentors Elina Duni, Yaron Herman and Manu Katché to record the video tutorials for you and listen to the submissions we have received so far. We will continue after the submission phase has ended.
Together we talked a lot about the current time and how we can bring this challenging year to a positive conclusion.
We have decided that we do not want to hold a public voting that would have followed after the end of the submission phase. This year is about cooperation and mutual support and not just competition. We want to use the marketing money that we would spend on promoting the voting phase to optimize the Beyond Music platform and thereby provide additional benefits to all of you. Therefore there will be no public voting this year. We hope for your support in this decision.
As far as the Public Award is concerned, we will present to you an alternative Beyond Award.
We will announce the Award winners of the Mentors as well as the Beyond Award in October, after we have listened and evaluated all submissions. Thank you already now for your manifold submissions!
In this challenging 2020, our flexibility and solidarity is needed more than ever. We strive to act in the best interest of you and Beyond Music.
With warm regards,
Regula, Founder & Konstanze, CEO
