Snow Patrol have been announced as 6/4 favourites to scoop the Choice Music Prize by official bookmaker to the awards Paddy Power.
The awards will be judged by media personalities including 2FM’s Rick O’Shea and Stuart Clark from Hot Press Magazine.
Other acts nominated include The Immediate, who are also up for recognition at this year’s Hope for 2007 Meteor Award at 3/1, Duke Special at 7/1, David Kitt at 16/1 and Republic of Loose the outsiders at 20/1. The awards ceremony will be held in Vicar Street on February 28.
