The Ontario Council of Folk Festivals (OCFF) is pleased to present the Songs From The Heart competition. Now in its 15th year, this event highlights the talents of Ontario songwriters and provides an opportunity for the winners to showcase their work for festival artistic directors and other presenters.

This contest is open only to residents of the province of ONTARIO, Canada. The Songs From The Heart competition is a juried process. Our jury will select one English-language winner and one French-language winner. Each will receive a Galaxie Rising Star Award of the CBC in the amount of $1,000, registration for the annual OCFF conference for one person, and an invitation to showcase at the 23rd annual OCFF Conference in Ottawa, Ontario, October 15-18, 2009.

A separate jury, coordinated by the Ontario Arts Council, will select the winner of the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award from among the top fifteen songs (not including the Rising Star Award winners). The winner of the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award receives $1,000.00 and registration for one person to the 2009 OCFF conference.
