Exposed Awards 2013 – The Winners!
Who would win in a battle between a giant robot, sumo wrestlers and a super sharp team of barbers, bands & bars?
Sheffield, that's who! Rarrrrrr!
Last week's Exposed Awards 2013 at The O2 Academy was a Japanese themed stomp around the very best of the city's makers and shakers. We've just about recovered now thanks (although if anyone's got tips for removing tatoos of Hello Kitty that'd be great) so time to go through the winners.
Before that tho, a huge arigato gozaimasu to Exposed Awards partner #Notdriving, who launched their city-wide carbon-emissions offsetting campaign at last night's event. Do have a look at their website for more on how you can make a difference by leaving the car at home. And out of this world thanks also to Ibiza Rocks and Alpha Rooms for their amazing prizes! We'll be announcing the winners shortly. Plus our J-poping DJs Amy Collin and Fresh Fruits.
Anyway, here's the full list of nominees and hotter-than-a-spoonful-of-wasabi winners…
