B.C. artists Amanda Sum, Dan Mangan and Snotty Nose Rez Kids named in Prism Prize shortlist
The 2023 Prism Prize shortlist for the top 10 Canadian music videos has been released and a trio of well known B.C. acts have made the list. The nominees include Amanda Sum’s Different Than Before directed by Mayumi Yoshida, Dan Mangan’s Fire Escape directed by Lester Lyons-Hookham and Damn Right by Snotty Nose Rez Kids directed by Sterling Larose.
Following deliberations by a 135 member jury comprising music industry professionals, the Prism Prize crowns the winning music video on July 6, 2023, in a Toronto ceremony. The winner receives a $20,000 cash prize, which Prism claims is the largest of its kind for music videos in the world.
All top 10 finalists are eligible for the fan-voted Audience Award which comes with a $5,000 prize. Members of the public can vote at PrismPrize.com. All videos are available for viewing at the site.
The Prism Prize also features a number of additional special awards, including the Telefilm Canada-supported Willie Dunn Award given to a Canadian trailblazer whose excellence has been demonstrated in music, video and/or film. The shortlist for the Prism Prize is below.
