"The support Prism Prize has received from industry partners and the public for the past four years is another sign of Canadians being at the top of their game in the music and media arts environment.”

The Prism Prize will announce the Top 20 on Tuesday, February 9, 2016, while the Top Ten will be announced on Tuesday, March 22, 2016, followed by the Prism Prize Screening and Awards Presentation on Sunday, May 15, 2016 at TIFF Bell Lightbox. 

The Prism Prize Screening and Awards Presentation will include a screening of the Top Ten videos, and award presentations including: the Special Achievement Award (presented by NewCanadianMusic.ca) for artistic achievements and exceptional contribution to music video art; the Arthur Lipsett Award for innovative and unique approaches to music video art; the Audience Award (presented by Noisey Canada); and the Grand Prize for Best Canadian Music Video of the Year. 

All Prism Prize Award recipients, including the Grand PrizeAudience AwardPrism Prize Special Achievement Award and the Arthur Lipsett Award, will receive $2000 vouchers from William F. White for production equipment rentals, and an exclusive gift bag from MAC Cosmetics. 

The Grand Prize is decided by a jury of over 120 Canadian music, film and media arts professionals. Videos are judged on originality, creativity, style, innovation and effective execution. Any Canadian music video, as defined by the CRTC, released between January 1 and December 31, 2015 may be considered for entry.
