Here is the press release:

This is the fourth year in a row Guitar Player has found its heroes from the Sonicbids community. Last year, Vicki Genfan was one of the 10 Sonicbids artists Guitar Player selected, and she went on to win the competition judged by Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, the Cars’ Elliott Easton, Dokken’s George Lynch and Brendan Small from Metalocalypse.
