NMVA

It’s that brilliant time of year again, where we get to sit and watch the incredible music videos created by Nordic directors, artists and creators over the past 12 months! 

The Nordic Music Video Awards are back – returning for a third year, and continuing their mission to celebrate some of the world-renowned music video works to have been produced in the Nordics over the past year.

The nominations this year are huge, with videos created for Nordic and international stars appearing side by side in this prestigious shortlist. A new category has also been introduced for the 2016 edition of the awards to celebrate the ‘Best Young Director’. Denmark’s Jonas Bang has been highlighted for his work with Rangleklods (now known as Blondage!), and Swedish director Tim Erem gets a special mentions for his ‘Lean On’ video for Major Lazer and – which has now been streamed more than a BILLION times!

Johan Renck, the director of the late, great David Bowie‘s hugely acclaimed ‘Blackstar’ and ‘Lazarus’ videos is nominated five times in total, and previous Nordic Playlist curator Stian Andersen bags three nominations for his unmissable work with Susanne Sundfør on her video for ‘Accelerate’!

The winners of the NMVAs will be announced at a special ceremony at Cosmopolite in Oslo on the 21st May, and tickets for the event are available here.
