Nordic Council Music Prize

About the Nordic Council prizes
The Nordic Council awards five prizes each year – for literature, film, music, the environment, and children’s and young people’s literature. The purpose of the Nordic Council prizes is to raise interest in the Nordic cultural community and Nordic co-operation on the environment, as well as to recognise

outstanding artistic and environmental efforts. The prizes help to elevate and give visibility to Nordic co-operation.
