The Hunt For Undiscovered Christian Artists Is On!
Firstfruits Music Awards was recently launched in an effort to address the lack of recognition and support emerging Christian artists receive. Underpinned by an international panel of notable music industry professionals, the judges affirm the events values, ethics and music standards statement, providing accountability, plus ensuring fairness among all contestants.
Applicants can submit up to five different songs, and the song submission evaluation criteria include originality, scriptural content, song lyrics, song melody, song arrangement, performance and commercial viability. The song’s purpose must be to both edify the Lord and bless the listener. It must also accurately reflect biblical content, being of a godly nature.
Global submissions are limited to 5,000 and the top 24 highest scoring songs will receive public exposure. Artists in the top 12 may also be able to collaborate and network with music industry professionals.
The Grand Prize winner will receive £25,000 in cash and the prestigious winner’s Firstfruits Music Awards trophy. The finalist will receive £5,000 in cash together with the prestigious finalist trophy. For non-UK entrants, the equivalent is paid in the artist’s local currency. In addition to this, £5,000 will be donated towards Gospel-led missions, generated by the proceeds of the event.
Colossians 3:17 says, ‘And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.’
