There were a total of 22 submissions for this project and 14 applicants were selected to have their song on the final CD. The selections were made by an outside jury of 6 members of the Canadian music scene arranged for YWIM by Music Yukon. Comments came back from jury members that they were impressed by the high quality of the submissions and that it was difficult for them to make their final decisions.
