HarderFaster Awards 2012 - The results are in!

Reported by HarderFaster / Submitted 13-02-13 16:48

As another year passes HarderFaster members have been looking back at 2012 and voting for who, what, when and where made the year memorable, whether that be for right or wrong reasons.

This year saw a higher turnout than 2011, but your votes still demonstrated the usual wit and wisdom, with Josie showing well for festival, and Zoology seeing mentions in many categories, including New Party.

Despite the increased numbers, you still have pretty diverse and eclectic tastes so we’ll continue to award top honours to those who were clearly in the lead and mark honourable mentions to those near the top.
