The Alberta Media Production Industries Association (AMPIA) and Alberta Music, in collaboration with the Edmonton Arts Council, are pleased to announce the Edmonton Film Prize & Edmonton Music Prize. The calls for entries are now open!
The Edmonton Film Prize is a $10,000 annual cash prize (one $8000 prize plus two $1000 runner up prizes) to celebrate excellence in Edmonton’s screen-based community. The award was launched in 2012 by the Edmonton Arts Council and is administered by AMPIA. Entries are judged by an independent jury of filmmakers, broadcasters and members of the film community.
The Edmonton Music Prize was also started in 2012, and awards three cash prizes, one $8,000 prize and two $1000 prizes for runners up. Last year metal band STRIKER was named the winner for their album City of Gold. Singer-songwriter Lucette and Faith Healer were the runners-up, with each receiving $1,000.
“We are very pleased to be working with Alberta Music and the Edmonton Arts Council to jointly present the Edmonton Film & Edmonton Music Prizes,” says AMPIA Executive Director Bill Evans.
Chris Wynters, Executive Director of Alberta Music says: “We’re really excited to partner with the EAC and AMPIA on this year’s prizes. It’s really important to celebrate the incredible talent that exists here in Edmonton in the worlds of music and film.”
