Liverpool music lovers are given the chance to vote for their favourite artist from the 12 shortlisted for the GIT Award 2013.
The GIT Award judges pulled out all the stops during this year’s selection process.
Over six months of listening, hundreds of email exchanges and a dozen or so meetings they drew up the 12 shortlisted artists from near 400 entries.
However, during those meetings, and spurred on by conversations led by Bido Lito! editor Craig G Pennington and Seven Streets editor David Lloyd, it was decided there should be the introduction of the ‘People’s Choice‘ prize.
Similarly to the celebrated Liverpool Art Prize, the judges were keen to open up the 12-strong shortlist to Liverpool music lovers and let them have their say on the year in music.
Getintothis has teamed up with Bido Lito!, Seven Streets, Liverpool Football Club and Juice FM to host an online poll of the 12 shortlisted artists asking Liverpool music fans to vote for their top act from 2012-2013.
The winner will perform at the Award showcase on April 19 – and receive a special memento produced by Milk:Presents.
Peter Guy, editor of Getintothis, said: ‘The people of Liverpool love their music as much as football, culture and shopping – and that’s a lot. We want to give them their say on this year’s GIT Award shortlist and the best new music coming out of Liverpool – now’s your chance, it should make for intriguing discussion as they’re all musicians the city can be proud of.‘
