Awards Categories

While 2021 continued to present challenges for Calgary’s Music Community, we still celebrated together with our online awards show on September 26th.

The 2021 YYC Music Awards were extra special, as we presented awards for Children’s Recording of the Year, and Classical Recording of the Year for the first time.

Honouring a wide range of musical talent, it was a proud night for Calgary's music community and its artists as nominees were honoured in 24 categories.

Visit Winners to see the 2021 recipients.

Coming into our seventh year, the YYC Music Awards continues to grow and evolve as we explore new ways of life in the music industry. While we are hopeful we can hold our annual live gala, we will celebrate online again in 2022 if that is what’s needed to keep our community safe. To apply for an award, click on Submit.
