We are fast approaching the end of the year and while for the world at large it’s been a bit of a nightmare, looking at all of the music we’ve enjoyed this year we’re glad to be able to say that it’s been a special one for our ears. The independent music scene is hard, so the fact we’ve seen so many singles and albums released that have all been utterly brilliant is something we really want to celebrate.

Over the last few weeks we’ve been putting together our shortlists for the track of the year, album of the year and artist of the year. Last year we picked the winners but this time it’s down to you. Voting will take place between now and midnight on 18th December and we’ll be announcing the winners of each category just in time for Christmas.

You can vote once per day for your favourite nominations in each category. Just click them below and then make sure you submit your votes at the end. Each day, pop back and do it again to support your favourite artists as much as you can.

We’re not using this as a data gathering exercise – all votes are anonymous and we don’t collect email addresses and we’ve tried to make things as simple as possible so you can do your daily vote in a few minutes!
