It’s time for the 8th annual Gummy Awards, Stereogum & Videogum’s readers’ poll to determine the best stuff you’ve heard and seen in 2013. You guys have great taste and you love lists, so this should go pretty smoothly. Like last year, we wanna know what you think were the year’s Best Album, Best Song, Best Music Video, Best New Act, Best TV Show, Best Movie, and Best Viral Video. (There’s no Indie Rock Crush category this time because we’re saving that for Valentine’s Day.) As always, there are no nominees — vote for whatever you want! — except in the Viral Video category, which has 10 choices selected by Videogum. Everyone who submits a ballot will be entered to win a cool and relevant prize: the year’s 10 best albums (as determined by these poll results) on vinyl, courtesy of our friends at Insound. (In the event that one of the top 10 does not exist on vinyl, ahemYeezus, that one will be provided on “compact disc.”) You don’t have to vote in every category (you’re welcome, “I don’t watch TV” whiners), but Best Album and your Info are required. Use a valid email address so we can contact you if you win. If you’re looking for Best Album ideas, check our Heavy Rotation section. Our weekly 5 Best Videos and 5 Best Songs archives should jog your memory in those categories. And our 40 Best New Bands Of 2013 list is the best place to find Best New Act suggestions. One vote per person! Have at it, and tell us what you voted for in the comments when you’re done.
Polls close on 12/3 at 12 PM EST, and results will be revealed soon after. Check out last year’s winners here.
