The Prism Prize announces the Top 20 best Canadian music videos of the year, as voted by a jury of more than 120 Canadian music, film and media arts professionals. After viewing hundreds of music videos released in 2015, jurors selected the Prism Prize "Top 20" based on originality, creativity, style, innovation and effective execution.
"This was the best year for Canadian music videos ever, and a Top Ten list just couldn't capture all the talent," said Louis Calabro, Director and Founder of the Prism Prize. "With the Prism Prize Top 20, we are proud to present a diverse group of incredible artists and their remarkable work."
