First Weekly Finalists Selected By Celebrity Drummer Judges Announced


The Hit Like A Girl Contest, which kicked off at the annual NAMM show last week, has drawn more than 50 entrants in its first few days. The entrants to date represent 14 countries including the US, Brazil, France, Germany, Nigeria, Indonesia, South Korea, Ireland, United Kingdom, Colombia, Slovenia, Australia, Argentina, Uruguay,

Hit Like A Girl is the global contest for female drummers featuring prizes totaling more than $20,000. Girls and women drummers can enter in one of two age categories between now and March 1. Each week finalists are chosen by celebrity judges and industry personnel. Following the entry period there are three weeks of fan voting to help determine wildcard finalists. The finalists are announced March 24, 2014 and then the celebrity judges review all the videos again. Winners are announced April 4, 2014.

PRIZES: EVERYONE WINS
The top three finalists are guaranteed to win acoustic or electronic drum sets from Pacific Drums & Percussion or Yamaha DTX Drums. Runners-up 3 through 10 will receive additional prizes that may include drums, hardware, cases, sticks, and heads. All entrants will win something, though including gift certificates, digital subscriptions, web site memberships, or free instructional downloads.

YOUNGEST TO THE OLDEST
Already the contest has garnered one especially young—and talented—entrant Milana. Just five years old she plays along to “Monster” by Skillet, a tune that features Hit Like A Girl Contest judge Jen Ledger. At the other end of the spectrum some of the entrants took up drumming later in life and are entering in their 40’ws.
