You have one more day to submit for the Canadian Folk Music Awards

Canadian folk, roots and world artists have one more day to submit their recordings for the Canadian Folk Music Awards, which, if all goes well, will be presented April 9-10 in Charlottetown, PEI.

Canadian artists who have released recordings between May 1, 2019 and July 31, 2020 are eligible to submit.

All submission details and payments must be received through the CFMA website no later than 5:00 p.m. ET tomorrow.

Information on eligibility criteria can be found at:  https://folkawards.ca/eligibility

The CFMAs announced reduced submission fees – $10-$15 less per category – and new categories:  Single of the Year and World Music Album of the Year, which combines the two previous categories, World Solo Artist of the Year and World Group of the Year.

All told, the awards boast 19 categories plus the Unsung Hero Award.  A two stage jury process involving 100-plus jurors located across Canada and representing all provinces, territories and official languages determines the recipients in each category.
