The 2002 4BarsRest awards:


Just before you all pack away your instruments (a la Blue Peter tortoise) for their traditional winter hibernation the time has come again for the ever so traditional 4BR Awards. OK – we know everyone else has awards ceremonies, and ours are only traditional because we did them last year for the first time, but we think they hold a special place on all your hearts. Either that or it gives you a good opportunity to laugh at our nominations and for yourselves to take the chance of voting for who you think should pick up a gong or two for Xmas.

We have a number of categories for you to vote on and we have given five nominations that we think deserve to be taken into consideration. You don’t of course need to agree with us (who ever does eh?) but it should give you some idea of the calibre of contenders for the top prizes.

We will this year make sure that the winners actually get something from us to put on the mantelpiece or in the trophy cabinet in the bandroom – so get the acceptance speeches ready.

The awards come in the following categories:

Band of the Year
Player of the Year
Conductor of the Year
CD of the Year
Lower Section Band of the Year
Newcomer of the Year
Test Piece of the Year
Contest Performance of the Year

How to vote....

Follow the links above to read our thoughts on each of the categories before returning to this page to vote.
