FBi’s SMAC Awards Winners 2012

What’s the collective noun for hangover? Whatever the word is would be a good way to describe us after last night’s 2012 SMAC Awards aka Sydney Music, Art & Culture Awards presented by our good mates at local radio station FBi. Pedestrian was thrilled to present the award for Best Collective which went to the extremely stoked party-throwers, live music-hosters and general purpose trouble-makers Dirty Shirlows.

The rest of the deserving 2012 SMAC Award winners – voted for by the public – are as follows:
Best Visual Artist: Daniel O’Toole/EARS
Best Arts Event: Outpost

Shout out to Pedestrian contributor and co-host of The Walkthrough, Max Lavergne, who hosted the night and did a bang up job on the mic until he offended Matt Corby’s fans. Idiot.

A huge congratulations to all the winners and an enormous thank you to FBi, all the sponsors and those who performed on the night for providing a terrific evening of entertainment and recognition for the ones who inject the city of Sydney with goodness.
