Electronic Beats Readers’ Poll 2012

Another year come and gone; where does the time go? We all know the answer to that: work, partying, art, and of course: music. Throughout 2012, we’ve shared so much of the things we love with you that now we think it’s time for you to give us a little something back—your own taste and interests. Any music editor can make a Years’ Best list, but we want to know what you think about 2012, from your favorite album you’ve heard this year that to your most beloved venue for live music and body-moving DJ sets. In return, we have a selection of different prizes to give to you. They’re pretty big—take a look:

1st Prize: Travel and two tickets to an EB Festival of your choice—all expenses paid

2nd Prize: Dinner with the EB Staff at their headquarters in Berlin

3rd Prize: Your favorite albums of the year (in vinyl, CD or digital, whichever you prefer)

4th Prize: Five tickets for a EB Festival of your choice

5th Prize: A copy of Pet Shop Boys’ exclusive “Winner’” 7 inch single plus the special catalogue

6th Prize: A bag of New Order goodies

7th Prize: A premium Spotify account

8th Prize: A one year subscription to EB Magazine and Slices

9th Prize: A one year subscription to a Musicload pro account

10th Prize: Win a selection of 12 CDs from associates and members of the EB Family

Simply fill out the form below before December 18th. We’ll present the results over the holiday period, and select the winners in the New Year. The form awaits you below, as does 2013. We’re looking forward to exploring both with you.
