The cream of Sydney’s creative elite gathered last night to celebrate themselves, their projects and the city they helped improve at FBi Radio’s fourth annual Sydney Music, Art and Culture (SMAC) awards at Carriageworks. Here are Sydney’s most talented overachievers who kept the city’s creative heart beating in 2012 – with special mention to the biggest overachiever of them all/someone who clearly loves Sydney and is doing everything in her power to make it a better place – writer, editor, curator, event director and this year’s much deserved SMAC of the Year recipient, Jess Scully
