1st Armenian Pulse Music Awards
03/28/12 – 12:03 am UPDATE:
The voting process is now CLOSED!
We’ve had 28 days of unbelievable turn out, we want to thank every person who voted and shared this event with their friends, we want to thank all the artists for their participation, their support and of course their talents. Every single one of you are winners in our eyes and we wouldn’t have nominated you if we thought otherwise.
Our awards event was never who is the “best of the best”, it is merely a fan choice awards and it’s heavily depended on artists letting their fans know about it, some chose not too. All nominees were nominated because of their fans active involvement with ArmenianPulse.com and Armenian Pulse Radio. This included song requests, artist requests, hits, likes and comments on articles and other crucial factors. We encourage every artist to have their fans voice be heard on our site in order to get nominated for future Awards.
With over 100,000 votes cast, we are very proud of everyone’s efforts! This was our 1st Armenian Pulse Music Awards, and we will continue the tradition every year and hope to have a live stage event in Los Angeles by the 2nd or 3rd year. But we might end up using a 15 person panel, industry professionals to judge the awards next time around.
Like all Awards, ours didn’t end flawlessly, we had a few issues of people trying to defraud the votes, but it was nothing our voting system didn’t pick up on. All fake votes were deleted within 24 hours of the cast and the rightful winner has won!
Congratulations to all the winners, we will make a formal announcement this coming weekend, along with a special award presentation to someone who has contributed to the advancement of Armenian Music. Besides the formal announcements, all winners will be notified personally and be given instructions on how they can receive their awards.
Thank you all and keep the music coming!
03/26/12 – 10:23 am IMPORTANT UPDATE: We are sad to say that within the last day or so, we have had an influx of people who want to cheat the system. We will NOT tolerate this behavior and our system recognizes and logs, ip addresses, time stamps, and other crucial proxy server information. Our voting system also deletes any fake votes within 24 hours of a vote that has been cast. Because of this reason, and for the last remaining day, all voters will only be allowed to vote once they have registered. We know this is a hassle way for voters, but it is necessary to stop the cheating. We hope you understand.
