Stay Tuned for the Next Round of Submissions!




The 2017 submissions are in, and once again we are blown away by the talent in the Capital Region. Thank you to all the artists who have submitted. Together, we stand United in our fight against poverty through the power of music.

You can vote once daily for as many artists as you choose. The Top 10 will be announced on December 10, decided by community-wide vote and an expert judging panel (please refer to detailed judging criteria on the Rules & Regulations tab).  Phase 1 voting for the Top 10 closes November 29, 2017. Phase 2 voting closes January 21, 2018 to decide the Top 3 by community-wide vote only. The Top 3 will be announced January 22, 2018. Once again, the Grand Prize winner will be decided by community-wide vote only, including a live twitter vote at Red Tie Gala, where the Top 3 will have the opportunity to showcase in front of 700 community leaders. Vote for your favourite artists now!

Led by United Way of the Alberta Capital Region and PlanIt Sound Inc., we can all help increase awareness of local poverty issues.
