Every so often we share new opportunities with you, that we think are good for your career. In the past we’ve told you about Surface Unsigned, Liverpool Sound City and Music Connex, today we’re introducing you to the Exposure Music Awards.
Discovering, developing and delivering new music!
Exposure Music Awards® exist to help new artists and bands onto the radar, to help find new fans in the great music loving public – and to introduce new friends among industry and media along the way.
Launched in 2008, the Awards include Best Genre categories right across the musical spectrum, with recognition also for Best Male, Best Female, Best International, Best Video and Best Live! Nominations.
The Awards are judged by an experienced panel of music industry and media professionals, from label bosses and heads of A&R, to award-winning producers, radio presenters and many more who share a passion for unearthing new talent.
Best Genre Awards are judged entirely from the profile information submitted online, while nominees for the Best Live! Award are invited to play at regional auditions, as part of the selection process for the Best Live! Award Shortlist.
Previous EMA® Winners have:
– gained airplay on partner radio stations,
– hooked global Distribution deals,
– been selected to play Summer Music Festivals and The O2
– won free studio time and the chance to work with world class Producers
– been paid for the use of their music on MTV and VH1 globally,
– been presented at MIDEM, SXSW and LASynch
Exposure Music Awards continues to develop its live circuit, to bring EMA® winners to new audiences on the M4 Tour and M5 Live! – and a growing number of opportunities to play support slots at major music events.
This year, Best Live! Nominees have the opportunity to play LiveFest at The O2, with headliners N-Dubz, Tinchy Stryder and The Hoosiers on July 23rd.
Exposure Music Awards® 2011 Party takes place at Cargo in London on October 16th.
