Welsh Music Prize Launched

Ireland has the Choice Music Prize, Canada has Polaris and now Wales has its very own music award; The Welsh Music Prize. The prize, an initiative of SWN Festival and co-founders Huw Stephens and John Rostron, will be selected and judged by a panel of industry figures and music experts. A shortlist of 12 albums released between 1 August 2010 and 31 July 2011 will be announced very soon with the winner to be announced at SWN Festival 2011.
