Yasalam’s annual Emerging Talent Competition (ETC) has opened up submissions for 2019, up until September 30.

Musicians can now submit their details and music to Yasalam’s official website and a judging panel will select ten acts to compete.

The acts will undergo a month-long training and mentorship programme, followed by a live acoustic performance in Abu Dhabi, where judges will choose a final three.

The top three finalists will perform between November 28 and December 1 at du Arena, and a winner will be crowned in front of the Yasalam After-Race Concert Audience.

The winner will perform at the 2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and secure a residency for the 2019-2020 season and more.

“The competition is a great platform to launch your career and I cannot wait to see what’s next in store for me,” said last year’s winner, Fafa.

ETC has been ongoing since 2015.
