Artists invited to apply for Fraser Valley Music Awards

Second annual event showcases talent in the Fraser Valley

The University of the Fraser Valley’s CIVL Radio station is calling for judges, sponsors, partners and artists to apply for their second annual Fraser Valley Music Awards.

The station launched the awards last year to showcase local talent from the Fraser Valley. This year, they will be teaming up with AbbyFest to host the show on Nov. 25.

Prizes will include a headlining spot at Jam in Jubilee, $5,000 in paid gigs, as well as promo and recording time.

“This partnership with Abbyfest is the best thing that could happen for the second annual FVMA’s,” said CIVL station manager Aaron Levy. “We struggled to represent the diverse background of our communities last year, though we were really pleased with the music we did honour, and this year I think we’re going to tap into the real flavour of our diverse Valley.”

In their inaugural year, more than 100 submissions were received for the awards, and more than $100,000 was contributed by local businesses to benefit the artists.

Applications for 2017 are available online at www.civl.ca/fvma.
