We know that some of the greatest talent out there is found in our own backyard.

That is why we created the Stingray Rising Stars Program.

Launched in 1998 as Galaxie Rising Star, this original program sets out to discover, encourage, promote and champion new up-and-coming Canadian artists. To that end, Stingray has partnered with numerous industry organisations and regional festivals to offer cash awards and provide showcase opportunities to great new Canadian talent of all genres.

With our unique approach, we're furthering our mandate to assist in the development of music in Canada. 

Contributing to the career advancement of up-and-coming artists and their breakthrough into new markets is one of Stingray’s core values. The inspiring talent of Canadian artists make them true ambassadors of our creativity. Stingray wishes to tangibly participate in their success. It is therefore with enthusiasm that we renew every year our commitment by presenting Stingray Rising Stars awards at numerous events across the country,” said Mathieu Péloquin, Senior Vice-President, Marketing and Communications of Stingray.
