The 2022 CFMAs will take place the weekend of April 1-3, 2022, in Charlottetown, PEI. Again for 2022, the CFMAs are pleased to announce reduced submission fees (a reduction of $10-$15 per category!). NEW for 2022, the CFMAs are pleased to announce that submissions of an album are now eligible in more than one songwriting category provided they meet the category requirements and that ‘‘Global Roots Album of the Year’ is the new name for ‘World Album of the Year.’
We are looking forward to heading to Charlottetown, PEI for the 2022 Awards Weekend.

Submissions are open NOW, and due to the Covid-19 situation, we have decided for this year to again reduce the submission fees for CFMA 2022. Instead of $70 for the first category submission and $60 for each subsequent category, pricing will be $50 per category during the Early Bird period, and $55 per category until submission deadline.
Established by Canada’s burgeoning and internationally-recognized folk music community, the awards currently boast 19 categories plus the Unsung Hero Award. Nominees are chosen for each category. A two stage jury process by 100+ jurors located across Canada representing all official provinces, territories and languages determine the official recipients in each category.
