This month, Impact scoured the corridors of Portland to hunt out you budding music enthusiasts. We needed to find out who you thought made up the best and worst of the musical spectrum of 2010. Although we may have received a few set-backs along the way and a few unwelcome responses to our prying (“Excuse me, are you interested in music?” “No”), we’ve managed to put together a pretty diverse selection of award winners. Coming straight from the mouths of Nottingham University students, here are the winners and a shortlist of runners-up for the Impact Music Awards 2010…
