Speaking on the announcement of this year’s shortlist The Irish Jam founder Kealan Duignan said, “We’re delighted to be teaming up with our friends at Irish Film London again to put this award on. This year we encouraged people to submit music videos to be considered for the award and we were absolutely inundated with entries. The Irish music industry is probably the healthiest it’s ever been and, just like the music coming out of Ireland right now, the videos reflected numerous different genres and styles. It was inspiring to see so much creativity on display. It wasn’t easy to select the final five.”
Irish Film London Director Kelly O’Connor added “Kealan and The Irish Jam team really have their finger on the pulse of the contemporary Irish music scene and do an incredible job of showcasing the best of it for London audiences. It’s a pleasure to receive their shortlist each year, and I’m looking forward to announcing the winner!”
