ANNOUNCING THE 2013 FBi SMAC AWARDS NOMINEES
FBi Radio is excited to announce the finalists in the 2013 FBi Sydney Music Arts & Culture (SMAC) Awards.
When we asked you who you thought deserved a mighty great SMAC, you jumped to action and told us all about the standout musos, artists, performers, restaurants and events you’ve been to this year and now after a massive effort (and many cups of tea) we’ve managed to narrow it down and present to you the 2013 shortlist.
Voting open now and will run until 5pm December 27.
You’ve got one vote in each category and you can only vote once – so make it count! A handful of tickets to the event and other rad prizes can be won simply by voting – so tell us who you think deserves a SMAC and you could be partying alongside some of your favourites in January.
The awards will be held on January 14 and broadcast live on FBi 94.5FM and online here at fbiradio.com, featuring performances from some of our music nominees. So get voting and tune in to hear everything unfold!
Find out a little more about our nominees here and put your voting pants on!
