“CAN YOU HIT THE MARK?

imagineNATIVE with support from Slaight Music are searching for Canada’s newest, unknown music talent and providing them $10,000 cash towards unprecedented opportunities to turn their talent into a career!

Through an online contest, Canada’s newest Indigenous musicians will be invited this summer to submit a sample track of their work to be considered by a jury of music and media arts industry leaders.

Leading up to the imagineNATIVE Festival in October, contest finalists will be promoted through imagineNATIVE social networks with the final nominee announcement the week of the 17th annual Festival. The contest winner will be announced an awarded at imagineNATIVE’s annual music showcase, THE BEAT.

After the Festival, the contest winner will access $10,000 to create a professionally recorded demo of up to three original songs, and to produce their first music video.

The video will then be promoted through imagineNATIVE with the opportunity to travel on the 2017 imagineNATIVE Film + Video Tour to Indigenous communities across Canada.

This is a new, rare and impactful opportunity for supporting new Indigenous music talent in Canada that we hope to build and make an annual celebration.
