Get to know our new categories!

You may have noticed that we’ve shaken things up this year. Not only do we have new judges, and double the cash prize, we’ve also introduced three new categories! We are excited to introduce these new opportunities to get your songs heard!

Undiscovered – Help us find Canada’s next great songwriter! This category is open to all genres of music. The entering songwriter must have never had a publishing, recording, or distribution contract (through a record label) for any of their music.

Canadiana – Do you have a song that references Canadian themes, figures, geography, history, or pop culture? We want to hear it! Let’s gather around the bonfire and celebrate our country through music!

Lyrics Only – Show us your inner poet. If your strength is in your lyrics, we want to read them!
