The nominees were:

Adam Smith (aka Steve Zacharanda), for showing just how to deal with breaking history. Get in there and get pissed.

TWMDriver – Brum’s best blogging bus driver, who has come from nowhere to become a fixture online and on Les Ross. All whilst staying anonymous, a bit.

Johnny Doom, the voice of metal in Brum. Late night DJ for Kerrang! Radio and previously lead vocalist of the band Doom.

Little Chris of Brumcast. Brumcast plays only music from the Midlands’ underground, dedicated to showing that there’s more to the area than Black Sabbath and UB40 (there is?). And Little Chris has been doing it off his own bat. One hundred and eleven times so far.

Roshan Doug. Writer, poet and internet troll. Roshan is loved and hated in fairly equal measure, based on reading the comments on his Birmingham Post blog.

Pogus Caesar. In the year of his retrospective exhibition, can one of Birmingham’s best known photographers snap to victory?

Paul Murphy of the Destroyers (see some video). Paul has called Birmingham home for over 30 years and has been a vocal supporter of songwriting and live music in his adopted city.

Helga Henry, creative industy all round good egg. Runs a mean tea stall too, and is loved a great deal.

Barbara Nice, “From crowd surfing to crap raffles… Barbara is the queen of comedy”.

The poll closed at midnight on Saturday 13th December.
