Hit LIke A Girl
Entries for the international Hit Like A Girl contest, which Rhythm is proud to be a media partner of, will be taken from 24 January, but the competition's website is now live.
As part of Hit Like A Girl female drummers of all ages are invited to sign up at www.hitlikeagirlcontest.com and submit a video of their playing via the competition's YouTube channel. Entrants will be split into under 18 and 18 and above categories.
These clips will then be scrutinised by a panel of star judges (made up of the likes of Cindy Blackman, Cherisse Ofosu-Osei, Emily Dolan Davies, Sheila E and Samantha Maloney) who will be charged with the unenviable task of whittling down the submitted videos to a shortlist of drummers that make it through to the next stage.
The overall winning drummer will win $20,000+ worth of drum gear - a prize pack not to be sniffed at.
As media partner for the event Rhythm is proud to support this search for talented stickswomen the world over.
