Walk of Fame seeks aspiring artists

Canada’s Walk of Fame is searching for emerging artists.

The non-profit organization has created an Emerging Artist Mentorship prize. During its inaugural year the organization is calling on aspiring musicians to enter the contest.

The winner will receive about $100,000 worth of prizes, which includes a cash prize of $25,000; twenty hours of private studio time at Metalworks Studio with an appointed producer, 10 hours of studio time in The Tragically Hip’s private studio, mentored by Gord Sinclair; introductions to agents, managers, music executives and entertainment lawyers.

People interested are asked to submit a video or audio file of a musical or vocal performance. Artists under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian’s permission to participate. Candidates must currently be enrolled in an accredited school or institution in Canada and receive a nomination from an administrator at that school.
