Canadian musicians still have the opportunity to enter It’s Your Shot 2019. Canada’s premiere songwriting and artist development competition created by Slaight Music and hosted in partnership with Black Box Music is open for submissions until August 2. Open to all musical genres, this contest encourages artists to submit a song and/or video for the chance to win a grand prize worth $100,000.
