Voting is now open for Searchlight 2014!
The contest is divided into several rounds, and this round will choose the regional semi-finalists. So don't just vote for your favourite band. Vote for all the bands you think deserve attention and radio play, in your region and across Canada.
You can always find the polls here on the Searchlight homepage in the "Vote now!" tab, the regional pages listed below, as well as links to vote for specific artists on their CBC Music artist profiles. You can find playlists of the local acts on the regional pages.
You can vote for up to 10 different acts in each region (you can only vote for a specific act once daily, so don't get greedy) every day. So make sure you check out the other acts and help promote the best music at home and across Canada.
If you have questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

And fans: just by voting, you are eligible for some great prizes from Yamaha Canada Music. So make sure you put your name in for some great prizes.
Voting for this round ends on April 6. For details on the voting rounds and everything else, check out the rules and regulations.
