Contest Opportunity: Lawson Vocal Studios Presents “Becoming”
Prizes include monetary funding towards artist development as well as meetings with music industry professionals.
Deadline: August 4, 2020
Lawson Vocal Studios (LVS & Company) in Toronto has announced a contest for Canadian emerging artists called “Becoming”. The concept of the contest reflects the idea that artists are constantly in a state of becoming and growing and to give emerging artists the tools and resources to become the performers they desire to be. The contest will be held virtually due to COVID.
“The time is right for us to celebrate the immense talent we work with every day at LVS and the enormous amount of talent we have yet to work with across Canada, by offering our first LVS emerging artist Contest, ‘Becoming’,” said Lorraine Lawson. “This contest will feature not just one winner but rather four standout artists in each category under 18 and over 18 with awards that are geared towards their continued growth and development.”
The contest is being held as a celebration of Lawson Vocal Studio's 5th anniversary. The final showcases and standout artist announcements happen later in August. The contest will be presented entirely online and will feature music artists from around Canada in two categories, ages 10-17 and 18 and above.
To qualify, artists are asked to submit a 5-minute audition video including an “About Me” component and one original performance. The submissions will be judged by a panel of industry professionals who will select the artists that will move on to do a live performance online. The winners will be awarded with prizes such as monetary funding towards artist development as well as meetings with music industry professionals. The aim of the awards is to recognize outstanding up-and-coming talent by supporting their continued development.
The awards are as follows (2 in each category):
Standout Artist (10-17 and 18 and over)
Standout Performance (10-17 and 18 and over)
Standout Original Song (10-17 and 18 and over)
Standout Video Package (10-17 and 18 and over)
There are no fees to submit.
The deadline to submit is August 4.
