15th Edition of The Canadian Folk Music Awards - Submission Opportunity

15th Edition of The Canadian Folk Music Awards - Submission Opportunity

April 3-4/20, Charlottetown PEI

Deadline: June 28, 2019


Established in 2005, the Canadian Folk Music Awards celebrate the breadth and depth of folk music in Canada. Established as a non-profit, the mission of the CFMA is to celebrate and promote Canadian folk music in all its forms. 

Created by Canada’s burgeoning and internationally-recognized folk music community, the awards currently boast 19 categories. Nominees are chosen for each category. A two stage jury process by 95 jurors located across Canada representing all official provinces, territories and languages determine the official recipients in each category. Canadian artists who have released recordings between May 1, 2018 and June 28, 2019 are eligible to submit their work for CFMA 2020. Awards will be presented throughout both evenings, April 3 and April 4, at the Awards Concerts. 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 Concerts will capture the true heart of the folk community, while celebrating the nominees and the category recipients.
