Toronto ON April 15, 2010
Supernova.com and 99.3 The Fox, a Corus Radio station, have partnered for the second year in a row to launch Fox Vancouver Seeds, Canada’s #1 Independent Talent Competition. The 2010 Fox Vancouver Seeds competition will be the biggest yet, featuring an interactive music community powered by the Supernova white-label platform, and designed to drive band and fan engagement during the competition.
Fox Vancouver Seeds has gained a reputation for discovering and bringing new Canadian talent to the national stage. Past winners include artists like Bif Naked, Nickleback, Default, Matt Good, State of Shock, Faber Drive and Daniel Wesley. With hundreds of new indie artists vying for a piece of the Fox Vancouver Seeds legacy, Supernova’s white-label platform is the ideal solution to the challenge of supporting an event like Fox Vancouver Seeds.
The new Supernova community platform features social media tools to encourage participation from bands, as well as their fans and listeners. Users can log in to listen to the Fox Vancouver Seeds competitors, share their favourite band’s music and videos, plus vote to help determine who makes it into the Top 50 Bands for Fox Vancouver Seeds 2010. The result is a musically immersive and interactive community, centered around the Fox Vancouver Seeds talent search initiative.
“What an exciting start to our biggest year yet for Fox Vancouver Seeds. Supernova.com has provided the program with a new opportunity to create a customizable online environment to further our support of independent talent. This marks the start of what will hopefully be a long and rewarding partnership between The Fox and Supernova and establish a permanent indie social network to showcase BC talent in a new and dynamic way.”
– Chris ‘Dunner’ Duncombe, 99.3 The Fox Program Director
