Jury Process

How it works

Manitoba Film & Music’s juries are made up of local music industry professionals specializing in a specific genre of music. They may include producers, broadcasters, managers, label owners/representatives, artists/songwriters, media, and retailers.

Juries evaluate submissions based on the quality of the music and overall project plan. They take into consideration the song writing, arrangement, musical performance, lyrics, vocals and musicianship of the demo submitted, as well as the artist’s production team, support team and potential for success with the proposed project.

Following a jury decision, all applicants are informed of the results. Unsuccessful applicants may contact MFM’s Manager of Music Programs if they wish to receive feedback on their application.

Only applications to MFM’s Music Recording Production Fund and Music Recording Fund for Out-of-Province Artists are evaluated through the jury process. Applications to the Record Product Marketing Fund, the Music Video and Viral Video Fund, and the Recording Artists Touring Support Fund are evaluated by MFM based on project development plans, artist track records, touring schedules, strength of support team, and distribution plans.
