Sound of... is a yearly BBC poll of music critics and industry figures. The people polled say who they think is the most promising new music talent. It was first done by the BBC News website in 2003. It is now widely covered by the corporation's online, radio and TV outlets, as well as other media. A longlist of 15 artists is published each December. A ranked shortlist and the yearly winner is announced the following January.
