Last year, SIM São Paulo took place under the theme Música Viva. More than a slogan, the phrase has become a mantra for everyone who believes in music power to welcome and include, motivate, change, mix and represent, build and rebuild - as many times as necessary.
The fourth edition of the SIM AWARD is a tribute to all the people, projects, companies and ideas that kept MUSIC LIVE in 2020. It will honor and highlight those who share these precepts and who did not remain silent or silent in 2020, despite the great difficulties and restrictions imposed by the pandemic and the constant attacks suffered by the cultural sector. SIM will reward not only creative, innovative people, companies and projects, but those who have shown themselves to be more human within this context, who have promoted interaction, cooperation, reflection and citizenship, encouraging respect for the diversity of choices and different worldviews.
In 2021, the project was expanded. Instead of four, as in previous editions, the SIM Award now includes 10 categories and you can help us decide who should be nominated for each one. Access the questionnaire here until the 26th and tell us what are your suggestions for names that cannot be left out. The most cited names win a place among the finalists and enter the market vote within the SIM Community from March 9th. The announcement of the winners will take place at a ceremony broadcast here on the SIM Portal on March 31.
Now discover all ten categories and indicate all your favorites for each one:
