Head of RT 2FM Dan Healy said: This has been another year of incredible music and performances from Irish artists and musicians which we have continued to celebrate across 2FM. We are looking forward to giving all this year's RT Choice Music Prize shortlisted songs and artists the support they truly deserve and to getting behind the three new categories which will make a welcome addition to this important celebration of the very best in Irish music.

RT Choice Music Prize Conversations will take place at BIMM, Francis St, Dublin on Wednesday 9th March. Conversations is an international music forum designed to encourage frank exchanges amongst panellists and with the audiences to challenge and elucidate the biggest prevailing issues confronting artists and industry professionals.

RT Choice Music Prize will once again celebrate the best in Irish recorded music. The Prize has become one of the music-industry highlights of the year since its inception in 2005. The Irish Album of the Year award is chosen from a shortlist of ten albums by a panel of eleven Irish music media professionals and industry experts. The winning AOTY act will receive 10,000, a prize fund which has been provided by The Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) and The Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA).

RT Choice Music Prize recognises and champions some of our finest songwriters and IMRO is delighted to continue its longstanding association with this prestigious music prize. Irish music continues to push new boundaries and this prize provides an important platform for new music to connect so strongly with audiences in Ireland and important overseas markets , said Victor Finn, IMRO Chief Executive.

IRMA are very pleased to continue their involvement in the Choice Music Prize. The search for extraordinary talent is always a rewarding task, and the Choice Music Prize shortlists, along with the new categories added this year, will help to further promote that new and up and coming Irish music talent. IRMA are looking forward to the show on the 9th of March next , said Willie Kavanagh, Chairman of IRMA

All shortlisted acts will receive a specially commissioned award on the night.

RAAP, Culture Ireland, FMC and Minding Creative Minds are also official project partners of the RTE Choice Music Prize.

The Choice Music Prize website has published a list of Irish albums released to date in 2022. This list can be viewed via http://www.choicemusicprize.ie/2022-album-list and notified by email regarding any additions info@choicemusicprize.com
