Jurors play an integral role in FACTOR’s approval process and without their support, the successful adjudication of
FACTOR’s applications would not be possible.
FACTOR jurors are volunteering members of the Canadian Music Industry. Their knowledge, expertise, and ability to
interpret the current music landscape in Canada makes them best qualified to help FACTOR decide which applications are best suited for funding.
FACTOR believes that peer evaluation ensures a fair and transparent process and promotes appropriate representation across all provinces and musical genres.
How are Jurors selected?
FACTOR Jurors are valued for their experience within the Canadian Music Industry and areas of specialty, including
genres, industry, and artistic and professional focus. FACTOR jurors include artists, artist producers, artist managers, agents, promoters, record labels, publishers, publicists, radio DJs, etc.
