It's CEA Time: Nominate Your Favorite Greater Cincinnati Musicians for the 2018 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards

UPDATE: The public nomination ballot deadline has been extended through Friday, Sept. 14 at noon

This November, for the 21st year, the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards will celebrate Greater Cincinnati’s rich music scene, with awards given to artists in various genres and categories like Artist of the Year, New Artist of the Year and Album of the Year.

But there is work to do before we get to the 2018 CEA ceremony/party at Memorial Hall on Nov. 25. And, once again, we need your help.

Starting today, music fans can go to the write-in ballot and nominate their favorite area artists for the CEAs. The top nominees from this round will be presented to the CEA nominating committee, which includes various “behind-the-scenes” members of the local music community (writers, radio DJs, etc.). The committee then whittles down the nominations to a ballot that will be open for public voting in late September. The committee selects the Artist, New Artist and Album category winners, but everything else is decided by you.

CLICK HERE TO NOMINATE WHO YOU THINK DESERVES TO BE IN THE RUNNING FOR A 2018 CINCINNATI ENTERTAINMENT AWARD.

Get your picks in quickly — the ballot closes Sept. 7.

UPDATE: The public nomination ballot deadline has been extended through Friday, Sept. 14 at noon
