“The competition provides a platform to thousands of global musicians to showcase their talent and commitment to peace, aligning with the MasterPeace vision of mobilizing people across the world to use their talents to foster awareness and dialogue for peace building, and we use music as a mobilizer” Ilco stated.

For this year, My Music MasterPeace is extending its outreach with a more diverse network, teaming up with EMMA for Peace, the prestigious Euro Mediterranean Music Academy, Mideast Tunes, the biggest network for musicians in the Middle East, Un-Convention Hub, UK based global music network, and Music Aficionado, leading online community for musicians.

“I am pleased to be one of My Music MasterPeace judges. The purpose of connecting artists from around the world for peace, is something I strongly stand behind throughout my work, as in EMMA For Peace we truly believe in the power of music as a catalyst for social change”
