More Info on Showcasing

Every year artists from different disciplines are invited to apply to be part of the juried showcases at Ontario Contact via I Want to Showcase, a multi-conference application system for artists. Artists are able to submit applications to showcase at Ontario Contact as well as other contact events in both Canada and the US.  

As an artist, I really appreciate the focus that Contact puts upon showcasing and giving us time to meet with agents and presenters. This is the main reason I attended and the main reason I will continue to attend. - Victoria Yeh, Vector One Music 

Nearly 70% of Ontario Contact survey respondents said that at least 1 - 2 artists received bookings as a result of their participation; 14% said that it resulted in 3 to 6 artists and almost 10% indicated that 7 or more artists received bookings!

Independent showcases are at the complete discretion and responsibility of the sponsoring artist or organization and are completely independent of Ontario Contact.
