Progressive Music Awards 2013
Hello, and welcome to the voting site for the 2013 Progressive Music Awards. Prog Magazine has scoured the activity in the progressive genre for the past twelve months and come up with what we feel is a perfect representation of the top movers and shakers from which you can make your astute selections.
This year we have more nominees per category, a reflection of the depth of quality that is out there as well as offering you, the reader, a wider selection from which to make your choice. And we’ve added two new categories and renamed one. Limelight takes over from New Blood, reflecting the section of the magazine that highlights those artists just beginning to make their first tentative forays into the wider musical world. Breakthrough Artist acknowledges that, Prog magazine aside, it can be difficult for some of these bands to get decent recognition and acceptance from other areas of the media despite [sometimes] years of hard work. As for Band/Artist Of The Year, well, we think that one speaks for itself.
So have fun making your choices for the best the progressive music world has to offer. Thank you all for voting, and keep checking the website for any further information. We announce the winners at Kew Gardens on September 3. It promises to be an amazing night.
