In an age where looks and presentation are everything, the music video is almost as important as the song itself. The LA Music Video Awards recognizes the best music videos from this past year.
Nominations are open until June 15th. The finalist will be announced on June 30th and winners will be determined by a combination of industry insiders and fan votes. A red carpet, cocktail hour and awards ceremony will be held at Covina Center for the Performing Arts in Covina, California.
Each category is awarded on LA Music Video Awards trophy

Response from festival:
Thank you so much for your feedback. I appreciate it and am always looking to improve the show. There are a few things that I would like to address in your assessment.
1) You mentioned that your video was not viewable on the voting site when the voting began. The reason was that your video was not available for viewing and was not released to the public until after we were well into the voting time. We have a couple of options when this happens and to respect filmmakers we make the video available with the password that was provided by you. We will never show a private video without the filmmakers' permission. When you brought it to our attention and provided us with the trailer of the video we quickly replaced the blocked video with provided trailer.
2) In order to keep things fair the videos change randomly with each page refresh. This is to give every video an opportunity to be at the top of the category (again trying to keep things as fair as possible).
3) The website is set up for you to be able to vote one time. However, if you and your fans found a way to circumvent the system and vote multiple times thanks for letting me know. We will have to figure out how to proceed in the future (disqualifying videos or whatnot).
4) The website has not been updated with the winners because I was still waiting for videos from the winners. A lot of the winners' videos are not available to be seen through the normal channels (YouTube, Vimeo...) and because of that I get permission from the artists to put the videos on the site (again respecting the filmmakers and their art).
Again thank you so much for your feedback. Please feel free to email me if you have any additional suggestions.
