Modern Drummer’s Undiscovered Drummer Contest is Back
Modern Drummer is now taking submissions for this year’s Undiscovered Drummer contest. The winners of both age categories (18 & under, and 19+) will get $1000 cash and a full write up in Modern Drummer magazine. Previous winners have been immortalized in the Modern Drummer Festival DVDs, but will that continue for this year? MD hasn’t announced yet, but they have guaranteed “an attractive plaque commemorating your victory.” Whee, a plaque! It can go right next to my Little League “You’re a Participant” trophy.
New for this year, you can submit your entries on YouTube (ala Heinz’s commercial contest)! A couple have already cropped up but I’m sure there will be 100’s more. We’ll keep an eye on them and report on any that are either very amazing, or very very awful.
