Nominations are now open for the 2012 Irish Music Association (IMA) awards. Given the phenomenal wins posted by Celtic Woman and past and present members in the 2011 Awards, chances are good for more awards in 2012 with the issuance of the new Believe DVD/CD and it's fantasic success on World Bill Board charts and elsewhere!
Here is the link to follow to make nominations: http://www.irishmusicawards.com/awards.php
A couple of notes: 1) Past winners are ineligible to be nominated in the same categories in which they won last year, though are eligible for nomination in other categories or in the same categories they have won in previous years other than last year. 2) This year you must be a paid member
to vote in the IMAs. This will eliminate criticism and uncertainty about how the pubic voting was weighted and counted relative to paid member voting.
If you're not already a paid member, membership as a patron only costs fifteen ($15.00) dollars. As voting won't be for months, make plans now to join. We'll be sure to keep everyone abreast of the nominations and the voting deadlines.
Chloe has not heretofore secured a nomination in the Top Female Vocalist category. I don't know whether the Association simply makes the nominations for the award based upon the top vote-getters among eligible nominees or other criteria, but certainly the more nominations of Chloe they get, the better her chances of receiving a nomination.
Lets see if we can help Chloe get this nomination and ultimately, the award!
