Polaris 2011! Now with more money!

· by Steve Jordan

For the first time in our six year history, we're increasing the prize money. We will now be presenting the winner with a cheque for $30,000, and increase of $10,000. This increase is due in no small part to our good friends and presenting sponsor Sirius Satellite Radio Canada. Welcome back Sirius!

But wait, that's not all. We had a meeting with music industry hall-of-famer Gary Slaight a while back. He said to us “we need to give the artists who don't win something tooâ€. We agreed, so he put up $2,000 for each of the nine non-winning Short Listers.

We have lots of other amazing things planned this year, so watch this space, or follow us in the usual spaces, which are on our site.


Stay up to date with the latest in the industry.
