The Mercury Prize, formerly the Mercury Music Prize and currently known as the Nationwide Mercury Prize for sponsorship reasons, is an annual music prize awarded for the best album from the United Kingdom or Ireland. It was established by the BPI and BARD (the British Association of Record Dealers) in 1992 as an alternative to the industry-dominated BRIT Awards.

Nominations are chosen by a selected panel of music executives in the music industry in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

The Mercury Prize also has a reputation for being awarded to outside chances rather than the favourites.
