As a result of a call for proposals launched by the Commission in 2008, Eurosonic/Noorderslag (1), a foundation organising a popular music festival in the Netherlands, was selected as the organisation which will be given the task of selecting successful border breaking debut artists in the field of music.
Eurosonic/Noorderslag will also produce the award ceremony and will be in charge of promotional activities for the 2010 event. The ceremony is scheduled to take place in January 2010 in Groningen, the Netherlands(2).
Through the European Border Breakers Awards (EBBA), the European Commission, in cooperation with the European Broadcast Union (EBU), rewards debut artists and groups who have successfully crossed national borders.
