Hecklers 2016: You Pick the Final Category!


We're going to be releasing the nomination ballots for the The Hecklers in a few weeks. (Can you believe it's been a year already?) The Hecklers are an award ceremony to celebrate the local talent in Hong Kong's art scene. Unlike other ceremonies in town that vote on a panel based system, we allow our readers and the people of Hong Kong to vote on who they think is the best of the year. 


HKELD has recently expanded to cover music and visual art. Some new categories (Best Local Artist, Best Local Band) will reflect this expansion. Also because of the expansion of coverage some theatre/dance categories have been combined to make room for the new visual art/music awards. And to make sure that the ceremony remains succinct.


Our final category is always fun and we decided we would leave it up the readers of HKELD to decide what it is. Some are serious and some are more light hearted but as always... the people get to speak at the Hecklers on what they want to vote for! Here's the categories you can pick from:


Best Festival- Best art based festival in Hong Kong.

The Patron Award- For businesses and people who support the arts both financially and emotionally.

The Rock- For the person who is always there to clean up the mess.

Best Venue- Places we love to perform; that don't rip us off.

The Hype Man- Best arts based PR.


Voting has now closed.
