The CBC Radio 3: Bucky Awards are back for its eighth year!

Every year CBC Radio 3 gets help from you, it’s audience, to create a list of nominees (aka Canadian artists) in which the public can vote on. Everyday they release a new category that you are able to cast your ballot for, and some of these categories are pretty damned funny. So far the categories include:

Best Song
Rookie of the Year
Most “Canadian” Song
Most Dynamic Duo
Child of the 80s
Best Album Art
Sexiest Music
Best Live Show
Best Beat
Must Follow Artist (They mean on the Social Medias, not stalking) 

So you can see it is a pretty diverse and creative range of categories. So what is the point of these awards? To put a spotlight on amazing Canadian artists, as chosen by the public. It is a great way for bands that aren’t as famous to get their name out there and it is fun!

Some awesome artists in the running this year include: The Strumbellas, Gold & Youth, A Tribe Called Red, Whitehorse, Louise Burns (Also in Gold & Youth), Arcade Fire, BRAIDS, Top Less Gay Love Tekno Party, Austra, The Darcys, and more!
