Limelight's 2015 Artists of the Year: you decide

Vote for your favourite three in our inaugural Australian and International Artists of the Year Awards.

Every year Limelight's team of reviewers painstakingly select a group of recordings to top the poll in each of the five categories of our annual Recording of the Year Awards. This year we’ve upped the ante. We've created a shortlist of 40 outstanding artists – 20 Australian and 20 international – who have made a major contribution to the world of classical music, both here at home and overseas for the inaugural Limelight Artists of the Year Awards.

Some are established artists and some are relative newcomers. Several of the international artists have thrilled Australian audiences in performance while others have released stunning recordings or have achieved accomplishments of note in their field. The nominees include performers, composers, ensembles and conductors, all of whom are in the running to win one of two inaugural Limelight Artist of the Year Awards.

Now it’s your chance to be involved. We’d like you, Limelight readers, to vote for three Australian artists and three international artists from the critics' shortlists. The public vote will be combined with the votes of our critical panel with the announcement of the lucky winners in our January issue of Limelight, out December 17 2015.

VOTING IS NOW CLOSED.
