Ladies and gentlemen, voting on the 2013 Bucky Awards has now begun!

Once a year, CBC Radio 3 celebrates the best of Canadian independent music, as chosen by you, the audience.

Two weeks ago, we asked for your help in gathering nominations. Today, we’ve revealed the finalists in each category and opened the voting, which will run until midnight EST on Friday, November 29. The winners will be revealed on Wednesday, December 4.

From now until voting closes we will be highlighting a different category each day. Today we’re kicking it off with the nominees for Best Song of 2013. Find out a little bit about the finalists and why they were picked in the gallery above, and listen to the Best Songs playlist below.

You can vote once a day in each category. Mobile users, please accept our apologies that our poll will not work for you (unless you use the desktop version of our site on your phone).

What do you think of our Bucky finalists this year? What did we miss? Who are you rooting for? Let us know in the comments below.

Let the voting commence. May the best music win!
