One Night, Three Judges, Ten Performances & $20,000 Grant
Evaluated by a panel of 3 judges (see Rules & Regulation), Semi-Finalists will be selected and invited to the live event at Queen Elizabeth Theatre on May 5th 2017. The top 10 from the Semi-Finalists (based on evaluating criteria and rules & regulations) will perform live on stage, present their plans to the question “What would you do with $20,000?” and get feedback from the Panel. 6 Music Development Grants will be awarded, for a total of $25,000. One applicant will be awarded $20,000 to further their music career and an additional five others will each receive $1,000.
The Fund Me Fest event will be recorded and used for a future docuseries project and be broadcasted on the Fund Me Fest website, Youtube and other social media platforms.
We are excited about the possibilities that this event can provide our talented Canadian artists to further their dreams!
