The Taite Music Prize 2013:
Named after the late Dylan Taite, one of the country's most highly respected music journalists, this will be the fourth year for the award. In a similar vein
to several international awards, The Taite Music Prize's purpose is to recognise outstanding creativity for an entire collection of music contained on one album. The winner will receive a cash prize of $10,000, to be spent as they wish. The cash prize is kindly supplied by PPNZ Music Licensing.

Acknowledging originality, creativity and musicianship regardless of sales figures or genre, The Taite Music Prize was established to champion the finest
release by a New Zealand artist or group – the previous winners have all been excellent albums that demonstrate these criteria well.

The nominated finalist albums will be selected by votes from all IMNZ members and a thirty person judging group - comprising musicians, record label representatives, music journalists and radio staff. There will then be a secondary group of ten music judges that will decide the overall winner.

The judges will make their decision based entirely on the music on the finalist albums. Sales, genres, artist recognition or popularity are not contributing
Factors in their decision making process. The winner will then be announced at a presentation in Auckland on 17th April 2013.
The event will be live-streamed to the public via the NZ Herald Online.

  • Gordon Campbell: On The Best Albums Of 2016

    OK, I’m not even going to try and rationalise this surrender to a ‘best of’ listicle.
