2011 Awards Process

Welcome to the 2011 DMV Music Awards. Below you will find information on the updated nomination and awards process. Be sure to nominate your favorite artists and executives.

Voting begins January 1, 2011. The nomination deadline is February 14. Contact us with questions.

1) Nominees will be determined by an online voting system (40%) of the overall vote; a text-to-vote process (30%); and a DMV Industry “Power Ballot” (30%). The top seven (7) nominees from each category will be sent to a panel of 15 independent judges.


A. Online Nomination Ballot: Go to http://www.2011dmvawards.com to nominate. Each vote will be collected into a database, configured to only allow one vote per email address. The system records the IP address of each user to prevent multiple voting from a single email address.


B. Text to Vote: text the key word “DMV” (space) to 313131 then correspondent number (for example, the BEST DC MALE RAP is  #4) codes, then the name of the group or artist you would like to vote for.  example:      TEXT “DMV” to 313131  #4 john smith


C. DMV Industry “Power Ballot”: These individuals are drawn from various media outlets and industry professionals, with an intimate knowledge of the local music landscape.


We are confident that this system of voting will be the most accurate to date. The nomination deadline for the 2011 DMV AWARDS is February 14, 2011.

2) The winners are chosen by a panel of fifteen judges, consisting of reputable and experienced DMV Industry “power players,” representing different segments of the industry.

CRITERIA FOR SELECTION:

A. The selection committee will analyze each artist in the categories and choose a winner based upon performance, products, and accomplishments  in the calendar year 2010. Winners will be based on concrete statistics, not industry politics.
B. The panel will review the top seven (7) nominees in each category as determined by the nomination process.
C. All nominees will receive full consideration to ensure that the most deserving nominee is chosen.
D. The winner of each category will be determined by who receives the most votes from the final judging panel.
E.  Members of the panel are required and expected to make unbiased and fair decisions. The acceptance of gifts is strictly prohibited. Panel members are urged to vote in a manner that preserves the integrity of the DMV AWARDS.

While we want to make sure the voting process is fair, we will always want this to be an awards event where the people and fans are able to contribute and participate in the voting process. To ensure transparency, a list of the nominating panel representatives can be found on this site in January 2011. Winners will be presented with a DMV Award; however, all nominees will be presented with a letter of nomination and complimentary entry to the event.
Voting starts January 1, 2011. The nomination deadline is February 14, 2011.

    Hello,
    I am a music fan espacially when it is DMV talent. DMV had come a long way to get to this point.
    I give credit to artist who do their best to keep their image sharp to be the best they can be.
    Some Artist take their self out of character when they receive awards.
    I can truely say I am so disappointed in your recent 2011 DMV R&B Artist Chris Lee.
    An award winner of DMV should carry this and make great use of their image and set an example to others. Chris Lee has not done that recently on FB he has decided to slander other local talent in the DMV. It is embaressing to know such person represents DMV. I know better talents who deserve this award. This is to inform you of the people you choose.
