Give us YOUR thoughts on the standout recordings of 2017!

This year's process:

1) Initial qualifying round. We put out a call for information and assemble a list of all known qualifying Saskatchewan albums (100+).

*Album Criteria. To be considered for Best Of, the album

All genres of music are included in consideration. Artists do not need to be members of SaskMusic to participate. There is no "entry fee."

Official reissues/compilations of previous material, where released as a new package, will be considered.

2) An industry jury will listen to the qualifying albums to help us determine the longlist of approximately 40 albums. 

3) The longlist will be open for general public voting online from approximately December 9-18. These votes alone will determine the top 10. Only one vote per IP address will be recorded.

4) The Top 10 shortlist will be announced between December 19/20-22. Please note, ties would result in more than 10 albums appearing on the shortlist.

This project is for the promotion and celebration of Saskatchewan music. We apologize for any oversights, errors or omissions.
