Supporters can place their votes right now, with the final shortlist being revealed on 28 October and the actual winner announced during the awards ceremony at the National Football Museum in Manchester on 21 November.

Bantams Banter is the brainchild of Tom Fletcher and Dominic Newton-Collinge and began back in 2010.

Their unique podcast, which is recorded direct from the press box at every home game and some away matches, aims to give supporters an alternative view to match-days with the Bantams.

Having produced 73 separate podcasts since starting out over three years ago, Bantams Banter's shows have now been downloaded over 2.5 million times by City supporters.

Their podcasts have regularly made it into the top ten charts on iTunes, including recently reaching top spot in the iTunes Sports Podcast Chart and number two in the main iTunes Podcast Chart.

Bantams Banter also became the first independent podcast to record a show at Wembley Stadium under the licence of the Football League when City played Swansea City in the Capital One Cup Final.

With their fame and popularity growing over the years, Tom and Dom have featured on Sky Sports and BBC TV and radio, as well as starring in a promotional video for the Capital One Cup.

The Bantams Banter duo won BBC 606's 'Fans of the Year' for the 2012/2013 season, while they were also presented with the 'Specialist Publication of the Year' award at last month's O2 Media Awards.

Along with their increasingly popular podcast, Tom and Dom may be known to some City fans because of the songs they produced ahead of the club's two visits to Wembley last season, most famous of which being the catchy 'Let's Get Ready For Wembley' which the pair penned before the Capital One Cup Final.
