Woo! When we opened our first ever annual awards thing, we didn’t think so many people would write to us with their favourites, but we’ve been completely bowled over with votes. So thanks very much to everyone for sending those in.
To get the final winners and runners-up we equally mixed the emailed votes with those from our jury – made up of a panel of all our indieberlin reviewers and co-conspirators.
What do the winners get?
- A certificate stating that they were the most interesting artist of their category for this year
- One month free advertising on indieberlin for their exhibition/album/concert/fashion show/book
- Free participation in a day-long workshop on social media strategies, website design and SEO implementation, and online marketing
So with no further ado:
