We Want To Make Your Band Famous

Posted May 1

Attention bands: The O Music Awards is announcing a new category called Make A Band Famous — a battle of the bands whereby fans help up-and-coming acts make it to the big time. From now until voting for the O Music Awards launches on May 16, we will be pulling together a list of nominees and we want YOU in on the action.

How, pray tell, can one get in on said action? Naturally, we will be sourcing said nominees via committee here at O Music Awards HQ, but we will also be opening up the category to you, our talented readers and fans, allowing YOU to enter YOURSELF into the running. Yup, you could be one of 10 nominees in our Make A Band Famous category. You could be one of five bands chosen to perform during our show on June 19th in New York City. You could even be the overall champion, the band that will score the ultimate prize: a huge promotional opportunity from the combined forces of MTV, CMT, & VH1.

How can you enter yourself into the competition? We’ve launched a special contest via the Artist Platform’s new “Opportunities” page that lays it all out. Head over to the Artist Platform now and claim your page to get started.

We’ll announce our 10 nominees on May 16 when voting launches at OMusicAwards.com, and then narrow them down to five on June 1 – those 5 will play during the O Music Awards on June 16. On June 1, a new phase of voting will launch in order to choose one from the final five to get the ultimate honor.

Do you want to be famous? Well, then, get moving! We’re waiting to give YOU your big break!
