XM digs moderately into pocket for Canadian artists

XM Canada wants the world to know that it’s sponsoring a music awards show with a whopping two categories, and investing a grand total of $50,000 in prize money. For the mathematically challenged, that’s $25,000 apiece, or enough to cover airfare to the ceremony.

The awards will be given out in September, and rather than judge them based on merit, they’re putting it to a popularity vote.

Between this and the Junos, I think it’s safe to say that Canadian artists are well cared for.
