Canadian Folk Music Awards submission deadline extended


The Canadian Folk Music Awards have extended their submission deadline to July 15 at 5 p.m. ET.

The previous deadline was tomorrow.

“Due to the extraordinary circumstances the global pandemic has created for our community, the CFMAs have decided to extend the submissions deadline,” the board wrote in a news release. “We understand many who may be eligible to submit are working hard to make a living and hope an extra two weeks will allow them to have a little more breathing room in preparing their submissions.”

The CFMAs are also pleased to announce that submissions of an album are now eligible in more than one songwriting category provided they meet the category requirements.

Also, the World Album of the Year category has been renamed Global Roots Album of the Year.
