Prism Prize Short List Revealed


It will be a night to remember for the young and restless? No, we’re not talking about the Vancouver progressive rock band Prism, but a group that rewards innovative music videos. The annual Prism Prize will be awarding $10,000 on May 15 in recognition of the best artistry for a Canadian music video. The group unveiled a list of 20 back in February and has whittled it down to 10 finalists. Besides the grand prize, a number of other awards will be given out at the gala in Toronto (open to the public via ticket sales) at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. More info can be found here.
