Prix Félix-Leclerc

Prix Félix-Leclerc de la chanson

Created in 1996 by the Fondation Félix-Leclerc in collaboration with Les FrancoFolies de Montréal, the Prix Félix‑Leclerc de la chanson is intended to spur creativity among young singer-songwriters and encourage the production and proliferation of francophone music. The award allows two winners, one from Québec and the other from France, to introduce themselves to audiences across the Atlantic. In order to be eligible, candidates must have a repertoire consisting principally of original francophone pieces and have released at least one album.
