Last Call For 2017 Emerging Artist Mentorship Contest

If you’re an artist or band looking to get discovered, you’ll want to pay attention! The Emerging Artist Mentorship Program is still accepting applications from musicians, but you’ll have to act fast – the April 30 deadline is fast approaching.

Presented by Canada’s Walk of Fame, the Mentorship Program is a huge sweepstakes designed to help launch the career of aspiring young artists. The grand prize includes a $25,000 cash prize, studio recording time, networking opportunities with established bands and industry professionals, album cover art design, and much more. With over $100,000 in total prizes to dole out there’s also plenty available for runner-ups, so don’t be afraid to throw your name in the ring!

Previous winners include promising Canadian acts like Ivory Hours, Taylor Kurta, and Ayaz Virani. Some of the mentors from years past have included members of The Tragically Hip and Triumph, and even runners-up have seriously benefitted from the program: acts like Sam Cash & The Romantic Dogs and The Kents got some great boosts from the contest.

Eligible applicants only need to be between the ages of 15 and 35, so if you’re serious about pursuing music don’t hesitate to send a demo to the Program. All the sign-up information is available at the Emerging Artist website, but for real – act fast! You can also check out this promotional video on YouTube, or browse the poster below:

Mathew Kahansky

Once upon a time, Mat studied journalism. That's how he became Alan's one-time intern and current-time contributor, and the rest is ongoing history - get it? Mat also studied biology and music, so he has a strangely specific knowledge set that doesn't really apply anywhere other than useless fun facts. He currently works for a music tech start-up in Halifax, and is a big fan of the em dash.
