Reverberating the slogan of the SIM São Paulo 2020 edition, here comes the fourth edition of the SIM AWARD, a tribute to all the people, projects, initiatives, companies and ideas that kept MUSIC ALIVE in 2020, who did not remain silent and continued in the struggle despite all the restrictions imposed by the pandemic and the attacks suffered by the cultural sector. “We try to indicate names not only for the creative and innovative profile, but also for the human side that they showed in front of the whole context”, says Fabiana Batistela, director of SIM São Paulo.
This year, the award has expanded to 10 categories and includes a more than special one, in direct recognition of the efforts of professionals, companies, projects, programs, public and private actions that helped in the survival of the music market: the Music Aid category.
The choice of candidates began in February when, in an open vote here on the portal, SIM asked the general public to point out their favorite names in each of the categories. These suggestions served as a reference for the SIM 2021 Advisory Council during the finalist selection discussions, and also defined one of the nominees in each category, which is chosen by the public.
Agora que a lista foi divulgada, a votação está aberta e o seu voto vai definir quais serão os grandes vencedores do Prêmio SIM 2020 em 9 categorias.
To choose your candidates, simply access this link until March 29th.
The winners will be announced at an online ceremony on March 31, at 9 pm, here on the SIM Portal.
SIM São Paulo would like to reinforce the enormous importance of the support of brands for cultural projects, especially in these times when we face a serious health, social and political crisis. The achievement of the SIM Award was only possible thanks to the sponsorship of Calvin Klein. Thanks also to Oi, Oi Futuro and Budweiser, who supported us throughout the year 2020.
