The Vista Music Prize
Who gets nominated?
There is no application process.
Сanadian musicians who have appeared in the Top 30 on the NCM Emerging Chart in the past three months are automatically nominated for the Vista Music Prize.
We monitor new Canadian releases and feature a selection of noteworthy tracks each week. Once you are in our system, we track your social media metrics via Next Big Sound, and build our chart based on that data.
If you're making great new music and have a decent following, chances are we know about you already.
