All three Mini Viva singles are nominated for the 2010 Popjustice Twenty Quid Music Prize. "Left My Heart In Tokyo", "I Wish" and "One Touch" are all included in the shortlist for the annual Popjustice awards.
Now in its eighth year, the prize rewards the best British single of the last 12 months and is given out on the same night as the Mercury Prize. In order to be included in the shortlist, singles are required to be "literally amazing". This is the first time that an artist/group has been nominated with three songs.
The winner will be decided and announced on September 7 and will receive twenty pounds (cash). Judging takes place in a London pub and judges are selected from readers of Popjustice.com (you can apply here). Here's what happened last year.
