Spotlight Awards

The ‘Spotlight Song of the Year’ award has been set up for the first time this year in order to commend the multitude of musical talent that passes through the Friday night Spotlight show on HCR104fm.

The show has interviewed over 25 musical acts already this year displaying a wide range of local musical talent. To be in with a chance of making the shortlist, the artist(s) had to have come into the studio and appeared live on air. Competing against other bands in their month, the shortlist was carefully chosen by the Spotlight team. The shortlisted artists are those who the team feel connected best with the listeners on air and have an original song that sets the standard high for local talent.

Voting will open on the 6th of October on the Spotlight show and close on the 22nd of December at 22:00- a week before the winner is revealed. It is up to the public to decide who gets crowned the winner! You can vote through the HCR104fm website.
