This year the main event will take place at Constellations, Liverpool on May 14th. To launch, the guys at GIT are hosting a party at new Liverpool venue, The Buyers Club on Friday January 29th.



Founder journalist and all round boss man, Peter Guy, says of the award:

I’m delighted to be relaunching the GIT Award. In an age when award ceremonies have been cheapened by seeking viewing figures, selling tickets and watering down the very reason for which they were set up, the GIT Award has steadfastly remained true to its roots – championing the very best new music from Merseyside, pushing the superlative talents within our city to an audience that matters and collaborating with the creative community to provide an event the region can be proud of.

“Once again, the finest industry representatives from around the UK are on the judging panel providing a unique platform for our musicians to be heard to stand the chance of career-changing opportunities.”

A special Inspiration Award & a One’s To Watch Award will also be presented on the evening. The former pays tribute to those that have had an outstanding presence within Merseyside, whilst the latter celebrates the talent of a new artist on the scene.
