2024 MANITOBA COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS
On November 10, 2024, the Manitoba Country Music Awards will be held at Club Regent Casino and Event Centre. This is an evening not to be missed as we bring the province’s largest country music community together. Several of Manitoba’s top country acts will entertain guests as the prestigious awards are handed out to the highest-voted artists.

ABOUT MEMBERSHIP VOTING
With the exception of two awards that are voted on and determined by the MCMA Board of Directors, the MCMA Awards will go through a two-stage ballot process. MCMA membership is split in to two factions: Associate (Fan Only) members and Industry members. All MCMA members will be eligible to participate in the First Ballot (Nominate). Only MCMA Industry members in good standing will be eligible to participate in the Second Ballot. Emerging Artist of the Year, Radio Station of the Year, Radio On-Air Personality or Team of the Year, Festival or Event of the Year, Venue of the Year, Cover/Tribute Artist, Duo or Group of the Year Award and Fans’ Choice Entertainer of the Year awards will appear on the Second Ballot for Industry members as well as an Online Public Voting Ballot.

We strongly encourage fans and Industry members to spread the word and vote as we celebrate Manitoba’s country music talent.

All final Nominees are required to be Industry members of the MCMA as of August 31, 2024, in order to be eligible to participate in the Second Ballot. See the 2024 MCMA Awards Rules and Regulations for further details.

The MCMA is looking for sponsors and supporters of the event. If you are interested, or know of any individual, group or businesses that maybe interested, please email the MCMA at manitobacma@gmail.com.
