Kraumur music fund was established in 2008 Aurora Foundation in support of Icelandic music and artists – with special attention given to new and emerging talent. The fund operates on both local and on international level, cooperates with various bodies within Iceland’s music sector and annually grants the Kraumur Music Awards for the best albums being released in Iceland. This year the awards will be awarded for the fifteenth time! The nominees will be announced on the 1st of December and the winners on the 15th of December.
The jury has been working hard on reviewing all the music released this year in Iceland. All releases by Icelandic artists are eligible for the award – whether they are released on CD, vinyl or online. Artists and bands do not have to apply for their albums to be considered by the jury or pay an entry fee. This year’s the jury consists Árni Mathíasson (chairman of the jury), Arnar Eggert Thoroddsen, Helga Þórey Jónsdóttir, María Lilja Þrastardóttir, Óli Dóri, Rósa Birgitta Ísfeld, Trausti Júlíusson og Þorbjörg Roach Gunnarsdóttir.
