NewFound Talent Contest: MusicNL Week 2016 Edition!

MusicNL is proud to offer young musicians the opportunity to kickstart their musical careers during MusicNL Week 2016!

The contest will take place at the Bonavista Anglican Church on Wednesday, October 12th, 2016, kicking off MusicNL Week 2016.

The NewFound Talent Contest is an opportunity for young musicians aged under 19 to gain performance experience and compete for a chance to win a prize bundle aimed at providing them with essential tools for their musical careers. Participants perform before a panel of judges who offer invaluable input on performance style, songwriting and technical tips.

The prizes so far will help the grand prize-winning artist produce a demo (Blue Room Mixing, GNAudio, The Sound Solution, DC Design House, Atlantic Disc & DVD), give them promotional tools to establish themselvesĀ (Tom Cochrane Photo, Chris LeDrew Photography), and allow them to have a consultation with an artist manager to help them set goals for their future in music (Feedback Music). All three finalists will win gift cards which can be used towards getting new instruments or equipment (Long & McQuade). The first-place winner will perform at the MusicNL Industry Brunch on Saturday!
