Two New Awards!


The jury have started to send us their votes and we are gearing up for the shortlist announcement on February 18th. Before we get to that though, we are very proud to announce that this year we'll be introducing two new award categories.


The new awards include the Prism Prize Special Achievement Award, presented to a Canadian music video artist for their artistic achievements and exceptional contribution to music video art on a world stage; and the Arthur Lipsett Award, presented to a Canadian music video artist for their innovative and unique approach to music video art. Arthur Lipsett was a Canadian filmmaker best known for his sound collage films made for the National Film Board of Canada in the 1960s. Lipsett's unique approach to editing sound and image earned much attention, as well as an Oscar Nomination in 1962 for the film Very Nice, Very Nice, which we encourage you to watch below.
