While most years, the Prism Prize narrows the nominees down to a Top 10, this year the Prism Prize has decided to keep all Top 20 artists in the running for the Grand Prize, including Orville Peck, PUP, Mac DeMarco, and more. A jury of more than 120 Canadian creative arts professionals voted on the winner, who will be awarded $20,000, and the runner-ups will each receive a cash prize of $500.
