The JUNO Awards and Slaight Music have announced the return of The Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class, Canada’s premier artist development program, on the heels of a highly successful inaugural year. Submissions for this year’s Master Class are now being accepted through to June 30 at 5:00 PM ET.
This elite opportunity will recognize three talented Canadian artists or groups – as selected by the Super Jury – that are ready for the next step in their careers. The program aims to provide each participant with essential tools, unique opportunities and priceless connections to amplify their careers and to help them on their journey to the JUNO Awards stage. The Master Class includes a weeklong customized artist development program co-developed with Canada’s Music Incubator at Coalition Music.
Taking place in Toronto, this development program provides hands-on mentoring, education, skills training, development, networking and collaboration opportunities. Submissions are free and require an active CARAS Academy Delegate endorsement.
The three winners will each receive an all-inclusive trip to Toronto for an intensive mentorship week with Canada’s Music Incubator that culminates with a music industry showcase night in Toronto; a trip to the 2017 JUNO Awards in Ottawa complete with tickets to JUNO Week events and a showcase opportunity during JUNOfest; a docu-series capturing their journey to run on JUNOTV.ca; studio time at Slaight Music Recording Studios; a $10,000 MuchFACT Online Music Video Award and more!
