[I do a bunch of work with Vintage-TV, Canada’s full-on music video and interview channel for real music fans. If you have Rogers and Shaw, you should check it out. If you have another cable company, get on the phone and demand that they carry us. We’ve just announced an important new partnership. -AC]

Vintage TV Canada is pleased to announce a new partnership with Prism Prize.

The new partnership will see a one-hour Vintage TV Canada segment entitled Prism Presents which will feature curated playlists of the best music video content in the world. The programme will also feature the music videos of Prism Prize competitors and winners. It will be curated by the Prism Prize team, and their network of creators.

“We are very excited to partner with Vintage TV, so that together we can offer one of the few destinations on television where audiences can watch great music videos, and a national platform on which creators can gain exposure for their art.” said Prism Prize Founder Louis Calabro.

The CEO of Vintage TV, David Pick added, “We’re truly honoured to join with the Prism Prize in celebrating the art of the music video. The Prism Prize has deservedly attracted public and industry support from the likes of the Government of Canada, the SOCAN Foundation, the Toronto Arts Council and Tiff. Vintage TV Canada is determined to promote and share the Prize’s wonderful and extraordinary content with every Canadian viewer in every Canadian home!”

The Prism Prize is a national, juried award established to recognize creativity and innovation in Canadian music video. The jury comprises more than 120 Canadian music and film industry professionals, selected to nominate a shortlist of the 10 best videos of the year.

Each year, one video is crowned as the winner and receives a $15,000 cash prize. The Prism Prize is awarded based on artistic merit with jurors asked to consider originality, creativity, style, innovation and effective execution when making their selection.

Further details about the partnership will be announced in due course.

    I really love Vintage TV, but one of the things that bugs me is when they show a live concert video of a song the date they list on screen is the year of the release of the original song, not the year the concert video they’re showing was recorded. Would be nice to see the actual recording year, not the year of the release of the songs single.
