As the year draw to a close, Scandipop is taking its usual look over the past twelve months of music that’s been coming out of the Nordics. And picking out the very best. It’s our Scandipop Awards! Now in their 8th year.

We’ve compiled the nominations, which you can check out below. And the winners of each category will be announced and awarded in the new year.

Sixteen categories taking us through the artists, the newcomers, the songs, the albums, the EPs, and the ones to watch out for in the coming year.

Plus there’s a seventeenth category – the one we want our readers to vote in. We want you to tell us who your artist of the year is. Details on how to vote at the bottom of the page.

There’s a lot of brilliant pop music that’s come out of Scandinavia this year. And so as well as compiling the categories, we’ve also put together a Spotify playlist featuring the songs and the music makers behind this year’s Scandipop Award nominations. You can listen to that here.
