2020 Steamtown Music Award Public Nominations

Nominations will run March 2 – June 30. When nominations are completed, judging and online voting will take place.

  • Judging consists of two independent voting committees (organizers of the event do not cast a vote).
  • Some awards are voted on by the public. Voting takes place online and all possible attempts are made to prevent cheating. Those even suspected of cheating or manipulating the system in any way will be disqualified.
  • Nominees must hail from the area referred to as North East Pennsylvania. This is mostly defined by the area code 570. For example: The areas surrounding Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Williamsport and the Poconos. Areas such as the Lehigh Valley, Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton are not eligible.
  • How does voting work? Each member of the committee gets one vote. After reviewing the artists music, videos, performance history and impact on the NEPA music scene, nominees cast a vote. The nominee with the most votes wins.

The general public can use the form below to nominate their favorite bands from North East Pennsylvania for the 2019 Steamtown Music Awards!
