The nominees for Writer Of The Year & Podcast Of The Year are all consistent writer's of Onyx Urban Magazine and all consistent podcasters on Onyx Urban Radio. The music awards will go through a very different process. The nominees will be determined by a committee of professionals to narrow down which artists will be nominated for each category. These are independent artists that play on Onyx Urban Radio. (No artist will be nominated or perform at the show that is not apart of the Onyx Urban Radio Family) For Album Of The Year, because we are a radio station, most submissions are singles and not albums but we have some artists that have entire albums playing on the station but not many, that is why this category is grouped together instead of being divided by genre.
Starting the May 1st, voting will be open for the voting process will begin in May and you will have one week to vote one category, the next week another category and so on. Example...May 1st - 7th voting will be open for Writer Of The Year. May 8th - 14th, Podcast Of The Year and so on. Keep in mind, you will only be able to vote 1 time so make it count. More information will come as time grows near. Stay tuned
