Following a four-week promotion of the twenty-strong SAY Award longlist, the time has come for the public to place their favourite album onto the shortlist via a 72 hour public vote.
Starting from Monday 26 May, 00:01hrs, the British public has three days to visit the SAY Award website www.sayaward.com and vote for their favourite album from the longlist.
The album with the most public votes will secure an automatic place on the SAY Award shortlist of ten. The remaining nine titles will be chosen by an independent panel of judges and announced later that evening at a drinks reception held in Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA), Thursday 29 May (see Notes to Editors for full list of judges).
