The All New LA Music Awards is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a three-day event on November 8-11, 2016, at the historic Avalon Theatre in Hollywood, California, and this time with a facelift. The LA Music Awards is an international online competition award show where fans can vote their favorite artists to the top. After more than 24 years as CEO, Al Bowman sold his interest, and there is a new creative team in place who plan to take the show to the next level.
This plan to secure the rights came from USC business school student Natalia Alexandra, who participated as a spokesmodel in last year’s show. Alexandra and her team organized funding partnerships with Digital Radio Tracker, Rock Star University Records, Virdition, and V Squared to relaunch the show, giving it a sexy makeover. “This new LA Music Awards model creates an easier, less expensive, and more efficient way for an artist to enter the competition. Once entered, their only job is to engage their fans to vote them to the top,” says Alexandra, who hopes the 25th Anniversary show will be a fresh way to discover independent artists from all over the world.
With this streamlined sign-up process, artists in the categories of Pop, Rock, and Country can enter online by creating an artist page. Once entered, it is up to the fans to vote their favorites into the Top 10. The Top 10 in each genre will be flown to Los Angeles, with hotel and airfare expenses paid, to walk the red carpet and perform for the top spot on the televised awards show in front of a group of industry judges.
The top winner in each category will receive a recording contract valued at more than $100,000 through Rock Star University Records. They will be flown back to the West Coast to record a 10-track studio album with a famed producer, while retaining 100 percent of the rights to their music.
The LA Music Awards three-day event will kick off on November 8-11, 2016. Sign-ups begin now through September 18, 2016. Artists can log on to the new, revamped www.lamusicawards.com homepage to begin their journey to Hollywood.
