With just over three weeks until the 2010 ARIA Awards take place at the iconic Sydney Opera House (Sunday, 7 November on Network Ten) voting has now opened for the four Publicly Voted ARIA Awards presented by V Energy Drink.
At 12 noon today (Thursday, 14 October), Australian music fans have the first ever opportunity to determine who will take home four Publicly Voted ARIA Awards presented by V Energy Drink.
In three of these categories - MOST POPULAR AUSTRALIAN SINGLE, MOST POPULAR AUSTRALIAN ALBUM and MOST POPULAR INTERNATIONAL ARTIST – the final nominees are based on the top selling singles and albums in the eligibility period (Friday, 28 August, 2009, to Saturday, 21 August, 2010 inclusive). The remaining category is MOST POPULAR AUSTRALIAN ARTIST and the nominees for this Award are pooled from the finalists in 26 categories of this year’s ARIA Awards (excluding ARIA Artisan Awards nominees).
The winners of these four Awards, as determined by Australian music fans, will be announced during the telecast for the 2010 ARIA Awards on Network Ten from 8.30pm on Sunday, 7 November.
