The #LJDiamondAwards was created in January of 2016 by Lina Jones, it was created for the purpose of showing Independent Music Artist and the guest she interviewed on the LJDNShow a token of appreciation, and give additional to giving to exposure both the artist and the interviewee (business owner). The very first awards show was a success and the votes increased every year, in 2019 votes reached as high as 11k votes! The highest interaction our team and ever seen. Thank you to all who voted, the following images are pics of our prior year’s winners beginning with 2019 winners which were the first year multiple awards were given and the music videos were added on as a new category. Along with our famous “Most Popular Indie Music Artists” the other categories are:
- Most Popular Social Media Person
- Gospel/Christian category
- Pop/Rock category
- Hip Hop/Rap
- Most Popular Podcast
Trophies and prizes will only be issued for winning categories, in 2019 trophies where purchased in advance for each category. Because some of the Independent artists did not participate in the voting process trophies were not sent and funds are not returned when trophies are not distributed.
As a result, there will be a delay in the winners receiving their trophy because trophies will be ordered after all the votes tallied. If there is only one artist in a particular category that category will not be qualified for votes.
If an International artist is nominated to win in any category they must be prepared to pay all cost for shipping. Because of the rate of shipping plaques will be rewarded instead of trophies.
Nominees music will be voted on via web votes if you would like to register your song/songs the registration fee is $10.00 per song limit is 3 songs per category. Plus shipping fee of $15.00 per each trophy received (this price excludes international winners shipping). If you would like to register your song/songs to be nominated Square.com payments will be set-up on LJDNetwork on-line store beginning October 1, 2020.
