Your opinion counts...
SAY Award

The team behind this year's SAY Award are set to allow the public to vote for one of the 10 albums placed on the final shortlist.

Scotland's musical reputation scarcely needs an introduction. For such a tiny nation, the country has spent the past three decades navigating and instigating musical revolutions with its tongue firmly in its cheek.

The SAY Award launched last year as a means of honouring new Scottish talent. Garnering widespread coverage, the event is set to return in 2013 with a typically fantastic long list.

After the judging process is over, ten albums will be placed on a shortlist before the winner is unveiled on May 30th. This year, though, is slightly different in that you could help steer the direction of the competition.

Taking place on May 27th, fans will be able to take part in a 24 hour public vote. It counts, too, with the winning album set to be guaranteed a place on the shortlist. More information HERE.

Admiral Fallow Tree Bursts In Snow
