Nouvelle Prague 2016 Awards

Nouvelle Prague Awards are intended for subjects within Czech music industry and should highlight outstanding achievements and personalities, who have contributed considerably to the development of the Czech music business environment.

Awards will be given out in following categories:

Venue of the year

Regardless of its size, this award goes out to a venue, where all bands want to play and where all fans want to return. The awarded venue must have excellent programming, unique services, great staff and impeccable promotion.

Achievement of the year

Nouvelle Prague would like to award the achievements that meant the biggest leap forward in Czech music business. A whole new project or a new programming idea, a new business concept or an important innovation. Any substantial step away from the currently established conventions counts.

Personality of the year

Agent or manager who helped their clients substantially? Organiser of a successful festival? Author of an interesting project or maybe just a good promoter, who knows his job and does it well? Someone like that may walk away with this award. Simply anyone who surpassed their work standards within the past year.

Journalist of the year

The award is intended for a music journalist, who has significantly contributed to a better image of the music industry within general public. The award can go to an independent journalist, critic, host or editor of a particular media, whose approach helps to increase the prestige of both music and culture in general; fights myths and prejudice and at the same time educates and cultivates broad audience.
