For the past two weeks, the jury has been engaging as a group to define:
a) Considerations - the elements that matter when picking a winner.
b) Nominees - possible winners.
Key considerations include elements such as the national scope of the artist, the number of independent releases and a consideration of overall impact. As a next task, jury members made a case for their nominee in light of these key considerations.
We are just in the process of finalizing the short list and picking our winners. The two winners of the 2009 Independent Music Hall of Fame will be announced this Saturday at the Zunior 5th Anniversary Show in Toronto.
