What is NTMA?
NTMA is the abreviation for the New Times Music Awards

What are the NTMAs?
New Times Music Awards is a music competition that is designed to showcase the music and songwriting from local musicians in a wide variety of genres including Rock/Alternative, Country/Americana/Folk, Hip-Hop/Reggae, Open, and R&B/Blues. We start with a three week entry period for musicians to enter songs or full albums for consideration. These many entries are judged to produce the top three winners in each category. These winners all go on to be included on the annual NTMA cd and are nominess for the Readers Choice award. The competition is topped off with an awards showcase with performances by the winning artists in each genre.

When will the showcase take place?
This year's competition will be held on Friday, November 3, 7:00-10:00pm, at The Fremont Theatre.

Each first place finisher will compete against the others for Best Live Performance during the concert and awards ceremony. A panel of celebrity music industry judges will determine the best live performer, who will recieve a specially customized Newtie.

All told, seven bronze Newtie Awards will be presented. These stunning awards are hand cast from Peace Bronze, metal reclaimed and recycled from decommissions weapons systems. Second and Third place finishers in the five genres, songwriting, and album categories will receive specially designed plaques.
