Okay, you all asked for it, or at any rate failed to register objections in time… On behalf of the organising committee for this year’s Spill Awards, I am delighted to invite you to send in your nominations for the different categories set out below, to firstname.lastname@example.org – please DON’T post them in the comments below, as this whole thing works better if it’s a surprise to everyone but me. Nominations will close on December 15th, and the polls for categories where there’s a vote will appear shortly thereafter; the award ceremony itself will take place early in the New Year.
Album of the Year You can nominate up to five albums released over the last year; a shortlist will be drawn up and everyone will then have the opportunity to vote for their favourites.
Oldie of the Year Specially for those who don’t buy so much contemporary music, this is your opportunity to nominate an older record that you’ve discovered this year. One nomination per person, and please write a sentence to explain your choice.
Film of the Year Nominate up to three films.
TV Programme of the Year Nominate up to three programmes.
Person of the Year One nomination per person, and please justify your choice.
