Vote In Video Of The Year Category

PMA

We launched the Progressive Music Awards yesterday, and with it came a host of new categories for you to vote in. One of those is Video Of The year. In the digital age it becomes ever more important in the way band’s present themselves, and without the need for extensive budgets with today’s modern technology, sheer creativity and a bit of imagination, and any band can come up with something that holds up against anything a major label could conjure up.

This is something we hope is conveyed in the nominees for the inaugural Video Of The Year award. Take a look at each of the videos nominated and then cast your votes via the Prog website at www.progmagazine.com/awards.
