Canadian music lovers! Voting for the 2013 Bucky Awards continues today and we need your help in recognizing the most outstanding homegrown artists of 2013.

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. 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 turn the spotlight on the ten nominees for Rookie of the Year. Learn more about the finalists and why they were picked in the gallery above, and listen to the 2013 Rookie of the Year 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 this year's Rookie of the Year shortlist? Who did we miss? Who are you rooting for? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @CBCRadio3!
