Fort Erie's DJ Shub is up for three awards (Best Music Video, Best Radio Single and Best Instrumental Album). Brantford has two hometown boys in the running: Jace Martin (Best Pop Album) and Logan Staats (Best Folk Album, Music Video). Six Nations Blluesman Derek Miller is also nominated for Best Producer for his work on Logan's album, Goodbye Goldia.
