The International Jazz Improvisation Competition first organized in 20th century 70’, was originally the national event. Among its prizewinners you can find such a renowned artists as: Jerzy Główczewski, Wojciech Niedziela, Michał Tokaj, Krzysztof Herdzin, Leszek Możdżer.
The Competition evolution parallel to development of earlier Department, nowadays - Jazz Institute of Music Academy in Katowice, led to carrying an international shape.
