Young Drummers Competition Jury ​President's message

“The creative sector should always be fresh and up to date. The most important vein that feeds the sector in this sense is the new generation. Young Drummers is a very important step in this sense, where the new generation that will nourish, grow, inspire today and keep the industry of the future alive will have the opportunity to introduce themselves to the creators who will both educate them and work with them as colleagues. It raises the bar and sets a new bar.

It is a great chance for contemporary creators from different countries and cultures to come together and could test themselves in a common pool. The degree they will receive in this competition will be a globally important document. I can't wait to see what kind of minds will produce work in the near future and to evaluate the works with the valuable jury. As communication language founders, we create common visual and audio languages across countries and cultures. I love this common language of ours. It is a great honor and chance to evaluate the works together with the Young Drummers jury.”
