The short list has been determined for the third annual Edmonton Music Prize, a $10,000 cash prize created to recognize Edmonton-based musicians or musical collectives who have released a recording in the past 18 months. The award is sponsored by the City of Edmonton through the Edmonton Arts Council, and administered by Alberta Music. The Prizes will be awarded in recognition of superior work and achievement in the realm of recorded music as assessed by a panel of experts assembled by Alberta Music. In addition to the primary assessment of superior musical work, priority will be given to nominees that have also made a unique contribution, or outstanding accomplishment in music within the last 18 months. A large number of entries were received and the jury has narrowed the field down to a shortlist of ten artists/groups which includes F&M! The winner will be announced in December. F&M wish to thank our listeners and nominators. We are excited to be recognized in the top 10.
