The shortlist for the Choice Music Prize will be announced on Wednesday January 9th and the live event will take place in Vicar Street, Dublin on Wednesday February 27th.

The winning act will stagger home with a cheque for €10,000 (courtesy of the Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA) and the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO)) and a smashing piece of glassware (courtesy of industry body, Recorded Artists & Performers (RAAP)).

The shortlist is selected by a panel of 12 men and women, good and true, drawn from the ranks of those who write about and/or talk about music for a living. You’ll find out who they are when the shortlist is announced. And yes, they’re the ones to blame.

Declaration of interest: I’m one of the co-founders of this and am also the chairman of the judging panel.
