Canadian Folk Music Awards Submissions Now Open

By FYI Staff

Submissions are now open for the 2018 CFMAs taking place the weekend of Nov. 30 - Dec. 1, in Calgary, and be aware there are a couple of new rules for contenders.


First, potential nominees should note that the eligibility dates have changed for the annual shindig.

The new window for eligibility for Canadian artist and group albums is that they need to have had a Canadian release between June 1, 2017, and May 31, 2018. As well, 75-percent of the recorded tracks submitted need to new and not previously released by the artist. Hence, compilations featuring one or more new recordings are ineligible.

Established by Canada’s folk music community, the awards include 19 categories with five nominees selected in each. A two-stage jury process – by 100 jurors representing all official provinces, territories and languages – determine the official recipients in each category.

The $60 fee for early bird submissions is available until April 30, with a final submission deadline of June 15. After April 30, the first submission is $70, with a fee of $60 for each additional.

The submissions portal is here.

The weekend’s focus events will take shape as two hosted Awards Weekend Concerts, which are open to the public. Check the CFMA website for details and upcoming ticketing information.
