In order to give local talent recognition, Abbotsford’s 101.7 CIVL Radio is holding a music awards event this July. They are accepting submissions now from Fraser Valley musicians. Prizes to be won include free recording time, free professional photography, paid performances, meetings with music business professionals, and more. All applicants will receive support, feedback, and direction from industry professionals, an opportunity to perform in front hundreds of people, as well as the chance to be featured on a compilation album for the event. This is a great chance for artists to be heard by the public and industry professionals while gaining once in a lifetime opportunities. Applications and more information can be found online here.
