Moving Pictures coverThe winners of the 2nd annual Slaight Family Polaris Heritage Prize were announced earlier this week and Rush's Moving Pictures was one of the eight Canadian albums to make the final cut. Ten albums were selected from each of the time periods between 1960-1975, 1976-1985, 1986-1995, and 1996-2005. Two of these albums were then selected as the prize winners from each of the four time periods; one by a public fan vote, and the other selected by a jury of music critics, journalists, broadcasters and programmers. Moving Pictures won the fan vote for the 1976-1985 time period. The album had also been nominated last year but lost to The Trinity Session by the Cowboy Junkies.
