Voting is now live for the 2022 Acclaim All-Stars
Head to allstars.acclaimmag.com to cast your votes!

Acclaim’s voting panel of over 100 hip hop industry leaders have cast their votes to decide an initial shortlist of 40 semi-finalists and now it’s up to you to cast your votes to decide which acts make the 2022 Finals Team! Voting closes Monday 21st February.

Once the public votes are tallied, the top ten artists will be announced as the 2022 Acclaim All-Stars finals team. Within this finals team, eight of the acts will be decided by the public vote, with the producer of the year category voted for by the industry and a wild card nominated by Acclaim Magazine and SoundCloud. Powered by a community of artists and fans on the pulse of what’s next in music, SoundCloud will work with Acclaim to feature a promising breakout artist on the rise.

The 2022 finals team will be unveiled in March with the publication of an All-Stars digital cover featuring a photoshoot of the finals group alongside artist performances and interviews.

This year’s initiative is supported once again by JD Sports whose partnership has been fundamental to the delivery and growth of the All-Stars moment. Acclaim is also welcoming onboard our exclusive streaming partner, SoundCloud, who are presenting the wild card award. Iconic production hardware company Roland Australia are supporting the Producer of the Year award.

All-Stars prize partners this year include Chivas Regal, APRAAbletonATMComplex AURODESounds AustraliaSoundWestserenade.co and HipHopCharts.com.au, plus more to be announced.
