Concept initiators Soul Candi today announced the launch of the first annual official Dance Music Awards South Africa in Johannesburg earlier today.
Created to acknowledge and honour the accomplishments and contributions of South African dance music artists, the Dance Music Awards South Africa (DMASA) aims to award the hard working, publicly-recognized individuals who are pushing boundaries and driving excellence in the South African dance music industry.
The winner selection will be held entirely online with the SADMA managed as an audience-voted award event dedicated to South African dance music. Voting and nominations will be made through the official website and social media. With the fully transparent user voted award process, the DMASA gives the public the power to choose the award winners. Competition will be driven strictly by social media and online interaction, no panel will dictate the nominees.
The actual awards ceremon will also be conducted online, where the winner will be announced in each category. This not only provides fans a chance to interact with artists/DJs around South Africa but also helps those artists/DJs gain recognition and prestige throughout a wider fan base and audience. The winners will then be invited to a private honorary dinner to collect their actual physical awards.
