Be sure to download and read the Awards Manual before filling out a nomination form.
You must be a Music Nova Scotia member in good standing at the time you apply.
Music Nova Scotia Awards are divided into 'Music Awards' and 'Industry Awards'. The 'Music Award' nomination submission fee is $30.00 CDN (HST included). Your fee allows you one (1) nomination in any or all applicable categories for one artist only.
The 'Industry Award' nomination fee is also $30.00 CDN (HST included). This fee allows you to nominate any person or organization in any of the categories. For example, you may nominate yourself for "Manager of the Year", but you may also nominate a colleague or someone you feel deserving in another category. Please note that you cannot nominate more than one name in any one category (unless you submit a second, separate submission and pay a second submission fee).
If you would like to nominate both an artist and industry professional/organization across both the music and industry awards fields, you must submit two applications and pay a total of $60.00 CDN (HST included).
Submissions can be paid online through PayPal, which will accept a PayPal account or a credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Discover). You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay with a credit card. Once you make your PayPal payment, you will be given a PayPal transaction ID number which will give you access to the online submission form. If you cannot use PayPal, please contact our Member Relations / Operations Manager Lisa Stitt (902-423-0291) to pay by cheque, in the office with any method (debit, cash, etc.). Once you make your payment, Lisa will provide you with access to the nomination form which will bypass the PayPal submission form.
The final deadline for submissions (including payment) is Monday, July 27, 2015 at 5pm, ADT. Submissions that have not been paid for by 5pm on this date will be considered incomplete and will not be juried. Please consider adding this date to your calendar to avoid disappointment.
This year, Molson Canadian Nova Scotia Music Week heads back to Yarmouth, bringing the best of Nova Scotian musical talent to the South Shore.
