The nominations have been announced, and now it’s up to you to vote for your favorite bands and musicians to determine the winners of this year’s Cincinnati Entertainment Awards (CEAs). This year marks the 21st year of CEAs, which annually honor and celebrate the artists within Greater Cincinnati's rich and diverse music community.

Here are the basic rules: You don't have to vote in every category, but you're only allowed to fill out one ballot per valid email address. Ballots are monitored daily. We're cool with promoting and campaigning, but if we catch ballot stuffers, those votes will be immediately disqualified.

Specialists in many facets of the local music community — from writers and bloggers to radio hosts and club owners — were asked to be a part of the nominating committee. Public input (via an online nomination ballot posted in September) resulted in a "long list" of nominees, which members of the committee received for their consideration. The nominating committee determines three Critical Achievement CEA categories: New Artist of the Year; Album of the Year; Artist of the Year. Click here to see the nominees in the Critical Achievement categories.

Winners will be announced at the 21st annual Cincinnati Entertainment Awards party/ceremony/show on Nov. 25 at Memorial Hall in Over-the-Rhine.
