Congratulations to the 2018 Top 12!
Each year, the Top 12 is chosen from hundreds of applications, by a thorough process conducted by multiple juries. The Top 12 each receive a Development Award of $5000 upon entry to the program, while taking part in an Artist Development Bootcamp, the Showcase Series, and completing a series of career-enhancing challenges ~ all to determine the winners of $100,953 / $75,000 / $50,000 prizes.
Every year, the top 12 artists are paired up to do a co-write. This year, they were given the theme ‘There’s A Place’ to inspire their songwriting. These recordings are the result of those late night recording sessions and are a testament to the incredible quality of artists that call Alberta home.
