Jamaica’s first ever Video Music Awards, the “RETV MVP Video Music Awards”, will take place shortly.

The nominations are out and the nominees were selected by a panel of RETV staff and industry personnel. The winners will be determined by the public who can vote by sending
emails with their choices to Viewers can email the category that they are voting for along with the number assigned to the video in that particular category.

A panel will have the final decision in the selection of the winners in each category. Editor’s note: why do we need a panel if it’s a vote by the public???

Voting is now open and closes on February 12, 2009.

Winners will be announced in a live presentation on RETV in February.
