The Accolade Nominations Panel is currently considering the 2009 roll that will showcase various genres of music and highlight supportive personalities in the local music industry. Accolade Music Awards of Guyana is billed for November 21, 2009.
The Panel will review submissions from over 20 primary contributors in the form of Local Music Producers/Recording Studios, Disc Jockeys, Record Bars and Media Entertainment Personalities to determine the nominations roll in 40 categories covering the period January 1, 2007 to June 30, 2009.
This nomination period is way too broad. I understood the last period was the catch up period well it seemed so in my mind but hey, I guess next yr it will be July09-June10.
In all the categories, excluding those identified for special awards, no less than three (3), no more than four (4) artiste will be chosen for each and then presented to the public for voting using website and SMS text messaging.
Local Disc Jockeys, Media Entertainment Personalities, Music Producers/Recording Studios, Record Bars and the public participation at large will also feature prominently in the various tiers of voting to determine the winners who will be known and announced for the first time at the Awards Show. The entire voting process will be supervised and managed by a reputable audit firm.
If there was any rigging who would really care enough to take it to court?
An eligible artiste for the purpose of these nominations is considered as a person who was either born in Guyana; or attain naturalization status and or; a person who has lived in Guyana for the full eligibility period (January 1, 2007 to June 30, 2009).
Artiste may be eligible for any number of general categories. Where there are fewer than the minimum required amount of eligible entries the panel may use deliberate judgment, including making the entry automatically eligible in the same category for the following year.
I think I might live in GT for a yr and win an award, see you next yr :)
