MusicNL NewFound Talent Contest – 25th Anniversary Edition!






MusicNL is proud to give young local musicians the opportunity to kick start their musical career at the MusicNL NewFound Talent Contest 2017 – Anniversary Edition!



The contest will take place during MusicNL’s 25th Anniversary Week on Wednesday,  October 11 at 7pm at the Majestic Theatre in St. John’s, NL.


The deadline to apply is Monday, October 2, 2017.


The MusicNL NewFound Talent Contest  – 25th Anniversary Edition 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 kickstarting their musical career. Participants perform before judges who give invaluable input on performance style, songwriting and technical tips.


The prizes, valued at over $7000, will help the grand prize-winning artist produce a demo (Blue Room Mixing, The Sound Solution, Atlantic Disc & DVD, DC Design House), give them promotional tools to establish themselves ( 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), and two MusicNL Week 2017 Conference Delegate passes for the event in October, which is an opportunity for anyone with an interest in the music industry to network and learn. As well, all three finalists will win year-long memberships to MusicNL and will be exposed to all the opportunities available to members of the association.



Also, the winners will be asked to perform for the MusicNL Brunch, which is taking place on Saturday, October 14th from 11 – 2 pm at the Convention Centre. It will be held in the Bannerman Rooms.
