Jaysus, that was quick. Last year we had a party of epic proportions and this year we plan to damn well top it for The #Erics14. An awful lot has happened in Ireland this year, be it entertainment or sports related, and we're all over those we felt made some serious waves in 2014. Celebrating all that the world of entertainment has offered in the last 12 months, The Erics have earned their reputation as the most hotly contested and talked about online awards since their inception back in 2008. God we feel old...

Today, Wednesday December 10th, the voting for The #Erics14 is opened and will remain open right up until January 16th 2015. This year we've kept things as Irish as possible, so whether you're rooting for a particular Band, Movie, or hilarious Twitter Account, or you're hoping a certain Irish TV Show will reign supreme (RIP King Nidge), it's time to get the finger out and start voting. You can vote in each category up to ten times a day, so if you want your favourite to pick up an award on the night it's completely up to you.

In the event of a tied vote, said nominees will fight to the death ala Hunger Games. Also, if anyone knows Jennifer Lawrence can they tell her she's invited? Sound.

The #Erics14 will culminate in one hell of a shindig, taking place at The Button Factory on January 29th. Last year we hosted the mother of all parties, with roof-raising performances from Irish electro kings Le Galaxie and current chart sensation Gavin James among others. This year we can promise you it'll be even better, and all of you are invited. 'Cause if you're reading this then you're probably cool.

Stay tuned to hear the line up for The #Erics14 as soon as is humanly possible........

You can cast your all important votes over yonder where you can also win a nifty iPad Mini for doing so.
