Nouvelle Prague Awards
Nouvelle Prague in cooperation with Eventim announce the first ever Nouvelle Prague Awards. Nouvelle Prague Awards are intended for subjects within Czech music business. The awards should highlight important achievements and personalities who have contributed considerably to the development of the Czech music business environment.
Awards will be given 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. Awarded venue must have excellent programming and unique services, great staff and perfect promotion.
Achievement of the year
Nouvelle Prague would like to award the achievement that meant the biggest leap forward in Czech music business. A whole new project or a new programming idea, new business concept or an important innovation. Any substantial step away from currently established conventions counts.
Personality of the year
Agent or manager who helped their clients substantially? Organizer 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.
Voting at Nouvelle Prague Awards is open for all delegates in the particular year with the exception of Nouvelle Prague organizers and their employees. After registration, any delegate can hand over nominations for the three above mentioned categories. The nominations end two days before the festival starts. The festival organizer will select 5 most frequented nominees and present this shortlist for each category one day before the festival starts. Delegates will vote for the winners directly at the festival. Award winners will be announced at a delegates afterparty on Friday. The author of the trophy is a glass artist Jan Huňát. The awards will be hosted by Lenny Trčková from Czech TV.
