The awards, presented by CIVL Radio, will be presented in 15 categories on Dec. 19 at The Stage in Mission, starting at 7:30 p.m.

Among the prizes to be awarded are a professional music-video production, a main-stage performance at Jam in Jubilee, and a performance at the Mission Folk Music Festival.

Winners in each category also receive a $250 cash prize.

Artists who apply for a 2018 award will also be eligible for inclusion on a compilation record of artists from across the first three years of the FVMA.

By next year, CIVL will have funded four separate vinyl pressings – 800 total units – as part of the FVMA, including Shadow Steps, the record released last month on behalf of 2017 FVMA nominees Stephen Carl O’Shea and The Sylvia Platters.
