Call for Submissions: Spotlight Series

Posted on

Deadline: April 10 at 11:59PM

We’re shining a spotlight on the stellar music community in Manitoba with a regular series of interviews with local music makers. In each profile, an artist or rep from a music company will be featured in an interview by a local music writer and shared on the Manitoba Music site and socials.

This is an opportunity for up-and-coming and mid-career artists and companies who have exciting activities and have been actively participating in Manitoba Music’s programs and activities. Selected interviewees will be offered a small honorarium.

The series will offer a chance for members to promote upcoming events, releases, tours, projects, and other activities. This series will have a strong focus on gender diversity and BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ voices.

To be considered for this opportunity you must:

  • Have recent career activity (e.g. recent or upcoming projects or releases, shows, showcases, awards, media coverage)
  • Have a solid presence across social media platforms
  • Have a minimum of one original song or video on a streaming platform
  • Update your Manitoba Music profile page with current music, images, bio, and links to social media
  • Have a high-resolution promo image
  • Be a Manitoba Music member and current resident of Manitoba

Artists may not be featured in Spotlight and Song of the Week within a three-month period.

If you have applied to be a part of the Spotlight Series prior to 2023 and were not selected, please consider re-applying with updated info.

Submissions will be evaluated by a selection committee based on:

  • Music
  • Career activity
  • Quality of promotional materials
