We want to use this blog for two things: 1. to say thank you to the artists who have submitted their music, and 2. to tell you about a few new things we've added.
So first, thank you Ohio! We have heard from so many artists and heard so much great music. And thank you music fans who have helped your favorite artists get their music to us with the use of the OMA Gift Certificates!
For the 2016 OMAs we have made a few improvements. First, because we receive far more entries in the final weeks of the contest, we have created some great incentives to get your music in early. Check out the "About" or "Enter Now" tabs to see why July is such an important month. Also, this year, we hope to add the OMA Hall of Fame. Any Ohio artist who wins an award three times will be inducted into The Ohio Music Awards Hall of Fame!
Finally, we want to share our excitement at getting new artists greater exposure. You've certainly noticed that our winners' pictures and music are featured on our home page, and they stay there throughout the year. During peak months, the Ohio Music Awards website brings thousands of views to artists' music.
If you're new to the OMAs and have questions, scroll through the earlier blog posts and you'll learn about our mission and our history. Thanks for helping us celebrate the very best of Ohio!
