polaris prize

The annual Polaris Prize Gala gives an award to one Canadian album as the best of the year, chosen from a shortlist created by a jury of 196 journalists, academics, radio hosts, and business insiders.

“Selling out” by allowing Apple to use your music in a commercial or by accepting a popular award isn’t a negative thing at all. In fact, it allows musicians to reach more people with their words and their lessons.
