The public ballot will be launched the week of Thanksgiving (and only online for a few weeks), so keep your eyes peeled....then be ready to mobilize your friends & fan base or clients/customers to vote for you, your band, or your music business!
Also, we are dropping the title "Best...." from all categories, to be replaced by "...of the Year", which is far more consistent with our originally stated mission. So no more "Best Venue" or "Best Vocalist", but instead "Venue of the Year", "Vocalist of the Year", and the like.
Just an up-date on the process for anyone new to the Lexi Music Awards: We have a round of PUBLIC voting (this nets TWO nominees in each category)....as well as voting by our pro panel (an additional TWO nominees in each category)....and for the final round, once nominees are chosen, only the nominees themselves will vote for the award recipients in each category (except for the Critics' Choice Award).
The pro panel changes members every year and is always made up of a mix of folks: Performers, music educators, store management, venue owners, and the like.
