The Place Prize For Dance: The FinalsThe dance equivalent of the Turner or a Man Booker, the Place Prize is a prestigious accolade in the dance world. It is awarded annually and is worth 25,000 for the winning choreographer. Having been selected from video entries, 16 acts are commissioned 5,000 and given three weeks to perfect their piece, they then battle it out in the semi-finals. Four acts make it through to the final stages - three of which are chosen by the judges while the other is voted for by the audience. During the finals - which take place in April - the audience vote for nightly awards of 1,000 but it is the judging panel who decide on the overall winner. The 2013 finals will see h2dance, Riccardo Buscarini, Rick Nodine and Eva Recacha fight for the prize. The judging panel includes The Daily Telegraph's Sarah Crompton and Jonzi D of Breakin' Convention.
