Awards Categories

Coming into our seventh year, the YYC Music Awards continues to grow and evolve as we welcomed new members to our Board of Directors, and saw a dramatic increase in artists submissions for 2022.

After presenting a digital, online streaming event for the past two years due to COVID-19 restrictions, the YYC Music Awards Foundation is thrilled to host a live event for the 2022 Awards Gala at the Grey Eagle Casino Event Centre.

On September 18, 2022, we look forward to gathering together - in person - to celebrate Calgary's music Community and it's artists.

Join us at the Grey Eagle Casino Event Centre as we honour nominees in 25 categories.
