2013 Mobile Bay Art & Music Award Winners
Thank you to everyone who voted in the Mobile Bay Art & Music Awards (AKA the MODDYs).
We are proud to say that well over 1000 people voted with over 500 votes in both Mobile Bay & Alabama album categories and over 100 votes in all categories (except art – pay attention at ArtWalk and remember your favorite shows this year people!!).
That is A LOT of people paying attention to local art, music, film & books!
Our goal is to have even more people pay attention in 2014! That means ALL of you!
All our nominees were excellent and – since hopefully some new people got exposed to their work – they are all winners.
