Submissions are now open for the Canadian Folk Music Awards
Submissions are now open for the 15th edition of the Canadian Folk Music Awards, which will take place the weekend of April 3-4, 2020, in Charlottetown, PEI. The focus events consist of two awards weekend concerts, which are open to the public.
Awards will be presented throughout both evenings, April 3 and 4, 2020. These concerts combine the most loved events of the Canadian Folk Music Awards’ first fifteen years: the vibrant energy of the live music showcases and the awards gala. The awards weekend will capture the true heart of the folk community, while celebrating the 2020 nominees and the category recipients.

Why no 2019 CFMAs?
Responding to feedback from the previous awards weekends, the CFMA board decided to move the weekend to spring from December. This move extended the timeline into 2020.
Established by Canada’s burgeoning and internationally-recognized folk music community, the awards currently boast 19 categories plus the Unsung Hero Award. Nominees are chosen for each category. Recipients are determined through a two-stage jury process involving 100 jurors located across Canada, representing all provinces, territories and official languages.
