VOTE For Your Favorite Unsigned/New Music Band at 5th PURE RAWK AWARDS!
The 5th Pure Rawk Awards is upon us and will feature some brand new awards specifically designed to salute the grassroots level of unsigned and new music.
The Pure Rawk Awards 2012 initial voting is now open! Vote at:
This voting is the initial stage whereby you can cast an open vote in each category. This stage ends on 30th December 2011 and will open with a shortlist on Monday 2nd January 2012. The final voting for the shortlist will end on Monday 20th February 2012 where the only place you’ll find out the winners first will be the Awards party.
Editor Nix Crichton comments: “It started as a bit of fun when Pure Rawk first turned up on the web. We had a mere 150 votes. In 2011 we had grown to 11,000+ votes. We believe that good new bands should be given praise for their efforts and if they’ve got something special – they get the recognition they deserve.”
