2017 CCMA Spotlight Performance Contest
Calling all Manitoba Country Music Artists!
The Manitoba Country Music Association (“MCMA”) and the CCMA are partnering once again for the CCMA Spotlight Performance Contest
PotashCorp Country Music Week® 2017, being held this year in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (September 7 - 10, 2017) is just around the corner – and we want to help you get there.
The MCMA is once again running a contest in tandem with the Canadian Country Music Association ® (CCMA®) for your chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play alongside Canada’s brightest country music stars and most cherished legends during the Canadian country music industry’s largest annual event.
How it works:
Each province has been asked to select one country music act/artist (Act) to represent their province in the annual “CCMA Spotlight Performance Contest” (National Contest).
Once the provincial Acts are chosen, these Acts will move forward to an online poll (which will not be administered through a social media platform, but rather a stand-alone URL). The CCMA will provide a link to the poll. MIAs and selected Acts are encouraged to promote voting through websites, social media, media opportunities, etc. To vote, the voter must click through to the link and simply select which Act on the poll they would like to see perform at PotashCorp Country Music Week 2017. The Act that receives the most votes on the poll by 5:00 p.m. ET on June 16, 2017 will win a performance spot at PotashCorp Country Music Week. Each voter can only place one (1) vote for who they would like to see perform. The winner will be notified by 5:00 p.m. ET on June 19, 2017. The winner of the CCMA Spotlight Performance Contest will be announced on June 23, 2017.
Acts that are interested in representing Manitoba on this National Contest are required to email their submission (requirement details below) to the MCMA at firstname.lastname@example.org by MIDNIGHT May 10th,2017
Note: You must be a resident of Manitoba and a MCMA Industry member to be eligible

All Manitoba submissions will be juried by the MCMA, and one successful Act will be selected to move on to the National Contest for their chance to win a performance spot during Country Music Week® in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, at a public, official CCMA-sanctioned event.
