In 2021, in the “MASTER-PREMIO” category, participants in all nominations competed in 2 ROUNDS, (“JUNIOR” under 18 years old and “SENIOR” from 18 years old). The winners of their nominations participated in the GRAND FINAL.
The absolute winner of the GRAND FINAL, MASTER-PREMIO category was VASILISA BOGORODSKAYA (Moscow, Russia).
In the emergency situation in Europe and in the world, as a prize, Vasilisa chose a cash prize for the promotion and development of her creative channel on YouTube, with the help of SMM agencies, which is the most appropriate solution in this situation.
Her YouTube channel reflects the path of a musician from early childhood. The sequence of published videos does not always follow the chronology, but you can see this path in development and in the formation.
In addition to videos with solo performances, the channel presents performances in collaboration with various musicians – instrumentalists and vocalists. And also periodically there are films about composers, performers and musical events. Recently, a new column “Merry Heffalump” has been opened, dedicated to novice musicians.
