LJAlogo BiopartnerLeiden Jazz Geschiedenis Foundation is very glad to present Biopartner ABC as the new sponsor of the 13th edition the Leiden Jazz Award (2021), the yearly competition for young jazz musicians.

Biopartner continues its support that started with the 2020 edition but which due to Covid19, has did not get the attention we both hoped for. Biopartner nevertheless decided to renew its sponsorship and thereby make a 2021 edition possible.

The winner of the 2021 edition will be invited to play at one of the meetings Biopartner organises at the Leiden Bo Science Park
