May 9, 2018

The 2018 Toronto SOCAN Awards Gala is taking place on Monday, June 18, and we will once again be presenting the SOCAN Publisher of the Year Award, so we invite eligible music publishers to submit their candidacies.

To be eligible, the music publisher must be based in Canada, and their repertoire must be in large part Anglophone, or having had a significant Anglophone impact, creatively and commercially. Any publisher whose representative sits on the selection committee is not eligible for this honour.

The award recognizes a publisher member who has contributed in a significant and positive manner to the music industry and the creative community during the year previous to that of the Gala. The eligibility period for the 2018 edition of the Toronto SOCAN Awards is from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2017, and only those accomplishments which occurred during this period will be taken into consideration. All candidacies will be evaluated by a jury of music industry professionals.

Interested music publishers can submit their nominations to SOCAN’s Brandi Pickering, at, no later than May 11, 2018, at 5:00 p.m. ET. Publishers can download the submission form here. The top three finalists for the Publisher of the Year Award will be notified in advance of the gala, with the winner being announced during the 29th Annual Awards ceremonies.
