FBi Radio’s SMAC Awards are upon us again and this year sees an amazing cross section of Sydney’s finest vying for awards across thirteen categories.

The categories for this year’s awards span from music, art, collective endeavours, stage performances, innovative use of Sydney’s public spaces, video clips and for the first time, places to eat.

The event will be hosted by Sydney blogger Max Lavergne. The entire ceremony will be broadcast live on FBi 94.5FM.

Finalists for this year’s SMAC awards were chosen after a public callout for nominees. Key industry figures were also consulted during the nomination process. The winners will be decided through public vote, which opens today, November 30th, and will run until January 4th, 2012.
