Kuala Lumpur, 2nd May 2016

The Voice International Music Awards 2016 (VIMA MUSIC AWARDS 2016) have released the list of final nominees for the regional music awards platform.

Leading the way were Sekumpulan Orang Gila (SOG) with an incredible 11 nominations, followed by Roshan Jamrock who featured on 10 nominations, Rabbit Mac who featured on 9 nominations, GTXperiment with 8 nominations, bittymacbeth from Singapore and Kirstie Maximus, both raking up 7 nominations each.

It’s a massive list of nominees from Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei. For the first time, we have expanded the nomination list to go beyond the norm, especially in the Best Rock Song and Best Genre-Bender categories. We received more than 1000 submissions and in the rock song category in itself we had more than 400 songs. So, we decided there were just too many songs that deserved its due recognition and decided to nominate them.

Once again, we have a whole set of exciting acts who continue to innovate music in ways we never thought possible, and VIMA has been the perfect platform for the most weirdest and most creative spectrum of styles over the years.

Next week, we will begin the voting process where almost every day we will put up one or two categories for voting over a period of 3 days and the public and fans will be invited to vote on the official VIMA MUSIC AWARDS Facebook page. 40% of the overall scores will come from public votes and 50% will be decided by our panel of global judges that include award winning producers, major label heads, celebrities, the media and even previous Grammy winners. That final 10% will be determined by the VIMA team, to evaluate how well each musicians promotes themselves actively during the voting phase. We have always encouraged musicians to be their own marketeers of their brand and this should spur them on to do more. ” shared Siva Zaphod Chandran, founder of VIMA MUSIC AWARDS and VIMA MODEL AWARDS.

Fans and the public are invited to join the official VIMA MUSIC AWARDS page for all the latest announcements, news, interviews, and to cast their votes.
