Choice Music Prize 2010 Details Announced

The shortlist for this year's Choice Music Prize, Irish Album Of The Year 2010 will be announced on Wednesday, January 12th 2011.
 
The winning album will be selected at the Choice Music Prize live event, held in Vicar Street, Dublin on Thursday 3rd March 2011. The event will be broadcast live on Today FM.
 
The 6th annual Choice Music Prize will once again celebrate and acknowledge the best in Irish recorded music. The prize has become one of the highlights of the Irish musical calendar since its inception in 2005 and is awarded to the Irish Album of the Year, as chosen from a shortlist of ten releases by a panel of eleven Irish media professionals.
 
The winning act will receive a cheque for €10,000 courtesy of the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) and Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA), as well as a specially commissioned award.
 
For the first time, the Choice Music Prize website has published a comprehensive list of Irish albums released in 2010. The list currently numbers 240, the largest series of releases since the award was created. This list can be viewed and updated by logging onto www.choicemusicprize.com

THE STORY SO FAR:
The Choice Music Prize was established to highlight and promote the work of Irish musicians. It is unique in that it focuses simply and solely on the music in judging the releases, as opposed to sales or airplay.
The recipients of the Choice Prize thus far are as follows:
2005: Julie Feeney – 13 Songs (Julie Feeney)
2006: The Divine Comedy – Victory for the Comic Muse (Parlophone)
2007: Super Extra Bonus Party – Super Extra Bonus Party (Alphabet Set)
2008: Jape – Ritual (Co-Op Records)
2009: Adrian Crowley (pictured) – Season of the Sparks (Chemikal Underground)
 
Since last year's event, Choice Music Prize co-founder Jim Carroll has stepped down from the project. Jim will be succeeded as chairman of the judging panel by Irish Times music journalist and critic Tony Clayton-Lea. The project's organiser is David Reid.
