The Prospect Music Award is the UK's most innovative new music competition. It's an annual contest that sees up and coming music artists from a variety of genres battle it out to become the Prospect Music Award winner.
Founded by music journalist, EJ Scanlan under its former name Rising Star, in 2013 for his self run radio station, Phresh Radio, the contest is about trying to find new music artists who will conquer the music industry. Every year, the list produces a list of artists who are brand new to the industry who are unique, different and could be incredibly successful.
In 2014, the competition moved to YMCA Digital, where it has remained ever since.
In 2019, the Prospect Music Award expanded by incorporating judges of music experts into the voting process to choose the nominees and where they place, alongside the public vote.
