Once again, local music fans will participate in the nomination process for this year’s Cincinnati Entertainment Awards.
For each genre category, please enter the name of the performer you feel is most deserved of a CEA for their work in 2016-17. Because
the CEAs essentially “skipped” a year, local artists’ accomplishments
from 2016 will be considered for the 2017 program.
Recordings released publicly in 2016 through September 2017 are eligible for Album of the Year nominations. The New Artist of the Year category is for artists who have emerged in that same time span (they don’t have to have formed within that date range, just broken through on a larger level for the first time). The Best Cincinnati Music Ambassador category is for the artists with a national profile who best represent for the city.
Nominations are reserved for bands, singer/songwriters and other music creators from Greater Cincinnati who primarily write their own music. Please, no straight-up cover bands.
You may only fill out one ballot per email address; additional ballots will be discarded.
