This means that they have to listen through 228 compositions in total, provided by 76 contestants from 19 countries.

By November 30th there were 98 contestants who wanted to join the contest, but unfortunately there were 22 of them that couldn’t do so.

The titles of the compositions and the countries from where we received them can be found on the page ‘Who joined?’ on the B-Jazz website.
