2018 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 2018 CCMA Spotlight Performance Contest

CCMA Country Music Week® 2018, being held this year in Hamilton, Ontario (September 6 - 9, 2018) 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:
Participating provinces across the country have been asked to select one country music act/artist (Act) to represent their province in the annual “CCMA Spotlight Performance Contest” (National Contest).

Once all the participating provincial Acts from across Canada are chosen for the National Contest, the selected Acts will be highlighted via an online poll, set to go live on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. ET. Each province will promote their Act and encourage the public to vote. Each voter can only place one (1) vote for who they would like to see perform during Country Music Week in Hamilton (only one vote per IP address will be accepted).

The National Contest will run for 10 days, and will close on Friday, June 15, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. ET. The Act that receives the most votes on the poll by the time the National Contest closes will win a performance spot at a public, official CCMA-sanctioned event during Country Music Week 2018 in Hamilton. The winner of the CCMA Spotlight Performance Contest will be announced on Friday, June 22, 2018.

Acts that are interested in representing Manitoba on this National Contest are required to email their submission (requirement details below) to the MCMA at manitobacma@gmail.com by MIDNIGHT May 10th,2018

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 Hamilton, Ontario, at a public, official CCMA-sanctioned event.

What the National Contest winner receives:

There is only one (1) prize awarded, which goes to the National Contest winner. The prize consists of:
