CBCMusic Becomes Title Sponsor for Polaris Music Prize Gala
“Given our shared mission to honour and expose the best in Canadian music, this partnership is a natural and logical progression for the prize”, said Steve Jordan, Founder and Executive Director of the Prize.
CBCMusic.ca was created to connect music fans to Canadian Artists, said Mark Steinmetz, Senior Director, Music at CBC/Radio-Canada. Partnering with the Polaris Music Prize will strengthen this bond and help to further expose audiences to the amazing talent making music across our country.
The eligibility period for the 2015 Polaris Music Prize runs from June 1, 2014 to May 31, 2015. An Independent jury of 196 music journalists, broadcasters, and music bloggers from across Canada determines the Long List and Short List. Eleven people are selected from the larger jury pool to serve on the Grand Jury and will convene the night of the Gala to select the Polaris Music Prize winner.
