The Atlantis Music Prize is a music award annually given to the best full-length album from Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, based only on artistic merit, regardless of genre, sales, or record label. The award, established in 2008 by St. John's-based alternative newspaper The Scope, includes a certificate prize of $1000. The award is modeled after the Polaris Music Prize for all of Canada (which in turn is modeled after the Mercury Music Prize in the United Kingdom).[1][2]

Jury and selection process[edit]

No entry fee is required for submission, and all genres of music are included. A shortlist of 10 albums is compiled by more than 30 judges from the area, who each choose five albums, and a second panel of six judges selects the winner at the Atlantis Music Prize Gala.[3]
