Jurors are volunteers with substantial music industry experience. FACTOR relies on the participation of jurors to help us determine which eligible projects are funded under FACTOR’s Artist Development and Juried Sound Recording programs. Their knowledge, expertise, and ability to interpret the current music landscape makes them qualified to help FACTOR assess which applications have the most potential for success within FACTOR’s mandate.
FACTOR draws on a broad and diverse range of industry professionals to help funding reach artists in every community across Canada, in a wide spectrum of genres and styles. We believe that peer evaluation ensures a fair and transparent process and promotes equal representation throughout the industry.
