President of Blues & Roots Radio, Anne Connor, said “We would like to thank the jurors for the hours of listening that has gone into this year’s contest, it was not an easy task with so many fabulous entries, they were chosen because of their dedication and love of the independent artists that they promote on their shows each week, they are all extremely knowledgeable and respected members of the music communities in the countries in which they live and further afield. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the sponsors of this year’s contest, in a year that has been so challenging for artists around the world, it meant we could offer cash prizes for the first time, the winners, I’m sure, will appreciate the prize money at this very difficult time.”
