This looks like an interesting guitar competition and festival being held this Fall in the Milwaukee area:
The Wilson Center Guitar Competition & Festival is an annual, multi-genre competition which features four different categories—Rock/Blues, Fingerstyle, Jazz, and Classical. Four competitions, one festival. Contestants compete for $22,000 in prize money!
The performer list looks interesting as well. Ana Vidovic will perform on Thursday, August 13. Troy Stetina and Jonathan Kreisberg will perform on Friday, August 14. And, Leo Kottke and Antoine Dufour will perform on Saturday, August 15. I’ve seen Vidovic perform before, and she is a fantastic guitarist and performer.
If you want to compete, you need to get your application in by May 1. Good luck!
