by Kim Wilkinson

Now it’s your chance to vote for your favourite Christian artist.

Voting is open now – and will remain open until 5pm, Friday 16th August, 2024.

See who has been nominated and cast your vote for both your favourite Aussie and International artist.

The People’s Choice is a ’listener voted’ category in the Annual CMAA Excellence in Media Awards, celebrating the excellence, innovation and creativity of Christians in Media and Media Arts across Australia and New Zealand.

The People’s Choice Award is broken into two categories, Australian and International Christian Music Artists, with the top 5 artists being those who were the most played on radio in the past 12 months.*

The People’s Choice winners will be announced live from the Gold Coast at the Annual CMAA Excellence in Media Awards Tuesday evening, 24th September.

Cast your vote now!

*In the spirit of championing a wide number of artists, winners of this category from the previous year take a 12 month hiatus from being nominated
