If you’ve ever wanted to live the life of a Polaris juror, now’s the time. That’s because the voting for the 2018 Slaight Family Polaris Heritage Prize is almost over.
The Heritage Prize honours Canadian albums of the past from four distinct time periods: 1960-75, 1976-85, 1986-95 and 1996-05. Like the Polaris Music Prize, winners and nominees for the Heritage Prize are albums of the artistic distinction, without regards to sales or affiliations.
This is their version of a hall of fame where YOU try to determine who would have been nominated or won the Prize in the years before Polaris started in 2006.
There’ll be eight winning albums declared this year, two per era — one voted on by the public and one voted on by the specially assembled Heritage Prize jury.
Go HERE to vote. Voters will be able to submit ballots once per day.
Voting closes TODAY at 11:59 p.m. ET and winning albums revealed on October 23.
