ABOUT EDMONTON MUSIC AWARDS.
The vision of the Edmonton Music Awards is to acknowledge, celebrate and promote Edmonton music and musicians in all forms. Awards such as the Junos or Breakout West (AKA Western Canada Music Awards) recognize artists on a national level, but we strongly believe there are artists locally that deserve recognition for their work and the success they have achieved on both the local and national level. The Edmonton Music Awards is dedicated to the goal of annually celebrating, honouring and rewarding creativity and diversity in the Edmonton music community.
