The Paul Acket Award “Artist Deserving Wider Recognition” is an annual award. This prize is meant for talented jazz musicians that stand at the beginning of their career. North Sea Jazz helps them in their further development. In addition, the festival presents the Paul Acket Award “Special Appreciation” to a person that has deserved well of jazz in the broadest sense of the word.
The North Sea Jazz Festival for Kids is a special North Sea Jazz Festival for children, with the purpose of increasing the knowledge of jazz music and increasing enthusiasm of children for this kind of music.
BNP Paribas has been partner of jazz for over 15 years. Through the BNP Paribas Foundation, BNP Paribas helps jazz musicians to develop their career by supporting their recordings and concerts. In addition, the BNP Paribas Foundation supports several festivals and awards. The North Sea Jazz Festival, which since its foundation in 1976 has grown into the largest indoor jazz festival in the world, is in many ways a perfect addition to this.
