CONGRATULATIONS TO THE Hit Like A Girl 2023 Winners!
Congratulations to this year’s amazing Champions and Winners!
1,200 Entries from 60+ Countries, 75 Weekly Winners, 105 Finalists, 120 Judges, 3,120 Individual Scores and 90 International, Regional, Mini-Contest and Special Award Winners. These, along the names, photos and videos listed below and on the following pages, are the official results of the 2023 Hit Like A Girl contest.
Yet, in addition to these truly impressive and praise-worthy accomplishments, we have even more exciting results to share today.
Due to the incredible level of talent, passion and dedication shown by everyone who participated in the contest (and everyone who supported those who participated), we can also report that Hit Like A Girl has become one of the biggest, most respected and most influential drumming events in the world. More importantly, since Hit Like A Girl began 12 years ago, the rise of the female community has become one of the most significant drumming developments of the 21st Century.
In all honesty, helping create this beautiful community was somewhat of an unintended— but very happy— consequence. When we started back in 2012 the goal was simply to encourage more women and girls to play drums. However, what started as a contest has become a movement.
Therefore, in addition to recognizing our diverse group of Champions and Winners, we are extremely proud of everyone who participated this year. Every one of you is an essential part of building a bigger, stronger, more inclusive and, yes, louder community for all drummers. This a result we can, and should, all celebrate.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors as well as our judges, ambassadors and directors who, as in years past, generously gave their time and talent to support the cause. We appreciate you.
Now, let's play drums.
