CBC Music’s Searchlight 2017 Submissions Now Open

The search for Canada’s next big music act returns for the 2017 edition! CBC Music has officially opened up submissions for SEARCHLIGHT, with the deadline for entry being February 7. The application is open to musicians of all types including solo artists, duos and groups from all genres.

The competition will take place on CBC, as four finalists compete on a live broadcast, however something a little different has been added this year. The grand prize winner will receive an original song commission for Canada’s 150th celebration and a 2 week songwriting residency with a celebrity mentor from the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. The winner will also have the chance to debut their song at the 2017 edition of the CBC Music Festival in Toronto.
