Welcome to the first ever edition of The auspOp Awards.
Throughout the past (almost) ten years, we’ve prided ourselves on championing the best of Australian pop music.
Whether the artists are signed to labels or are fully independent, have a full back catalogue behind them or are just starting out, we like to support them.
And so this year, we’ve decided to take that support to an entirely new level by introducing The auspOp Awards.
We’re starting off small, of course, with just the three awards to be given out in 2017; Song Of The Year, Artist Of The Year and Independent Artist Of The Year.
But we need your help in deciding which artists should be the eventual winners.
Stage one of voting is an elimination process, during which the 25 artists you see before you should be whittled down to just five. Stage one voting will close on Sunday November 12.
Then, on Monday November 13, we’ll then give you the chance to vote on the final five through to Sunday November 26, after which the votes will be tallied and the winners decided.
We’ll announce the winners of each of the three awards in the middle of December.
You’ll be able to vote once per day and you can also select multiple options to allow you the chance to vote for more than one artist.
We’ll have more updates on The auspOp Awards in the weeks to come.
