Apply Now: CIMA's Annual Pre-Grammy Showcase (New York City, NY)
CIMA will be presenting our Annual Pre-Grammy Showcase, an event designed to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the GRAMMY Awards® and to highlight our great Canadian music talent to key industry and media representatives. This year the 2018 GRAMMY Awards® will take place in New York City, making it the first time since 2003 that the ceremony is held outside of Los Angeles.
Working alongside the Canadian Consulate in New York (as well as other partners), The Showcase and Celebration of Canadian Musical Excellence will take place on Thursday, January 25, 2018 in New York City, NY (venue TBD), 3 days before the GRAMMY Awards®.
CIMA is looking for submissions from 2-4 emerging, export-ready artists/bands. As business events will be organized during this event, we require that the artists/bands have a business representative present.
Artists/musicians should be eligible to perform in the US (passports, visas, etc.), and be "export-ready".
There is no cost to perform; however, the companies (artists/musicians) are responsible for all their own travel-related costs (airfare, accommodation, etc.).
Submission Deadline: November 17, 2017
Only successful applicants will be notified. Please note, this opportunity is only open to Canadian artists.
CIMA gratefully acknowledges the generous support of our Canadian partners and sponsors: Canadian Music Week (CMW), Corus Entertainment, the Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings (FACTOR), the Government of Canada (through the Canada Music Fund), Harvard Broadcasting, Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC), Stingray Digital and the Radio Starmaker Fund.
