eWorld Music to host Hollywood Music Awards

Mumbai: eWorld Music will host the Hollywood Music Awards on 20 November at the world-famous Kodak Theatre complex in Hollywood, California.

A diverse line up of artists will be seen at the show, which will also feature live music performances and award presentations. The show will be shot with multiple HD cameras and for digital worldwide broadcast in eWorld’s Boomerang Media Station.

Honoring a variety of music styles, from traditional to experimental, the awards show will give equal attention to both signed and independent music artists for original works. Separate categories will focus on artists whose music is used in films, television, video games, commercial advertisements, web-based videos and other new visual media. Special Lifetime Achievement and Career Achievement Awards will be presented to iconic artists for outstanding musical contributions to the art of music in film, television and other forms of media.

Submissions from around the world, for nearly every music genre, will be accepted and evaluated for consideration. Submissions are being accepted at www.hollywoodmusicawards.net.

One of the main goals of the HMA is to introduce new music to those responsible for placing and licensing music in visual mediums. Executive producer Brent Harvey explains, "By having big time music supervisors, licensers, publishers and producers involved, we feel significant opportunities will occur for emerging talent that otherwise might never be realized."
