-ize is used mostly in US English, and -ise is used mostly in British English.

In England, you would see it spelled 'prioritise' In the U.S., it is spelled 'prioritize'. Both are generally accepted with the exception of over-strict self-proclaimed English experts on both sides of the Atlantic. I prefer prioritize because it makes more sense to me phonetically.
