  • "Release date" for YYCMA purposes is defined as the date of the first shipment to retail, radio or posted online release date. Proof of online transaction or shipment may be requested. This applies to all submissions whether single, album or video! (People's Choice and Zackariah and the Prophets categories are excluded from this requirement.)
  • Artists from the Calgary area, including Airdrie, Banff, Canmore, Cochrane, Strathmore, and areas up to a maximum 125 km radius of the City of Calgary at the time of submission and at least 6 months prior.
  • At least 50% of the artist members must be from the eligibility area.

  • To be considered for a 2021 YYC Music Award, submissions must be received by 11:59pm MST on May 31, 2021. No extensions will be granted.

C. Submission Fee:

  • There is a $5.00 per category submission fee this year for all Recording and Artistic category submissions. You will see the total cost of your submission at the end of the form.
