Submissions are now open for the first annual YYC Music Awards. Happening on Sept. 25, the YYC Music Awards is a celebration for finding the best artists and bands across the city. In total, there’s 19 different awards up for grabs at the show. Some of the categories include Artist of the Year for both males and females, Music Video of the Year and Recording of the Year awards for Pop, Rap/Hip-Hop, Country, Rock and Jazz. “With 2016 proclaimed as Calgary’s Year of Music, we felt it perfect timing to announce the YYC Music Awards to take place this September. We think it’s deserving to shine the spotlight on Canada’s third largest city and its vibrant music scene.” says Shannon Ambrose of The Portal Magazine.
Submissions are open to anyone and everyone who has a passion for making music here in the city, regardless if they’re a big name or just starting out. Submissions can be made until April 16 at www.yycmusicawards.com.
