‘Smirnoff Female DJ Search’ contest is looking for the best female DJ in the country

The ‘Smirnoff Female DJ Search’ contest wants to find the best female DJ in the country and, for that, invites all national DJs to show their work. The winner will win several awards in support of her career and will also have the opportunity to perform at the Ultra festival in Johannesburg next year.


According to a statement sent to VerAngola, DJ Elly Chuva and DJ Leo Cris will be part of the jury of the contest, "Smirnoff's biggest project ever in Angola, to empower women to become international voices in this highly competitive industry".

Cited in the note, Elly Chuva considered that "globally, the industry attracts more and more women to the studio and to the DJ table, but it is still not uniform", adding that "with the Smirnoff Female DJ Search, we will continue to promote the growing trend towards gender equality in this area in Angola".

In turn, Inês Pascoal, manager of the Smirnoff brand in Angola, said that the intention "is to inspire female DJs" in the country to face obstacles and embrace their projects.

"From Cabinda to Cunene, passing through the four corners of Angola, music occupies a very special place. The global industry has gradually moved towards a more balanced environment due to this female intervention. Our intention is to inspire female DJs in Angola, overcoming obstacles, embracing their projects and making a positive impact in what has so far been a male-dominated environment. This aligns with our brand values ​​for gender equality and will be a first for the DJ scene in Angola," he said, quoted in the note.

Those interested in competing should "send a link with a direct message to Smirnoff's Facebook or Instagram, a short video, that shows their skills, or leave a flash drive with the information, in one of the several activation sites, whose list is on the brand's social networks with their respective addresses". According to the note, videos must be a maximum of eight minutes and include at least five tracks.

"We encourage participants to use their imagination and be creative. Originality, technique, track selection, stage presence, energy and mixing skills are some of the criteria that we will assess", said DJ Elly Chuva.

Applications close on the 6th of November. Then, the jury will choose the 10 best DJ's "which will later go to the public vote".

According to the statement, the videos of the 10 best will be made available on Smirnoff Angola's social networks for the public to vote. In addition to the videos, the public will also have the opportunity to see the "DJs perform live at Kizomba Music Festival and at Mercado de Comida, where the winning DJ will be announced".

The winner will win several awards to support her career and will also have the opportunity to perform at the Ultra festival in Johannesburg in March next year.
