Submissions open for Canadian Folk Music Awards, fees reduced!



Submissions are now open for the 17th edition of the Canadian Folk Music Awards, with early bird rates on until May 30.

Canadian artists who have released recordings between May 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021 are eligible to submit to the awards. Complete eligibility requirements are listed here: https://folkawards.ca/eligibility/

The 2022 CFMAs will take place the weekend of April 1-3, 2022, in Charlottetown, PEI.

Once again this year, the CFMAs are pleased to announce that submission fees have been reduced by $10-$15 per category. Instead of $70 for the first category submission and $60 for each subsequent category, pricing will be $50 per category during the early bird period, and $55 per category until submission deadline.

The CFMAs are also pleased to announce that album submissions are now eligible in more than one songwriting category provided they meet the category requirements and that the World Album of the Year category has been renamed Global Roots Album of the Year.

Established by Canada’s internationally-recognized folk music community, the awards currently boast 19 categories and an Unsung Hero Award. Nominees are chosen for each category. Winners are determined through a two-stage jury process involving more than 100 jurors located across Canada and representing all official provinces, territories and languages.

All submission details and payments must be received through the CFMA website no later than 5:00 p.m. ET, June 30.
