Reports from organizers of the Bass Awards 2013 indicate there is a near man rush from musicians for entries for nomination.

Though no official figure had been given, reports say close to 200 musicians have so far submitted entries that cover the respective categories but the process is still underway.

What seems to have made the competition interesting is the fact that the categories are not limited to reggae and dancehall musicians but also to any musician who has a reggae or dancehall song.

This means a hip-hop or hiplife musician who has a dancehall or reggae song is also qualified to enter the song into any of the categories.

The award has a public voting as well as industry voting categories.

The Public Voting Category, the organizers said ?contains a number of award categories that are open to the general public as well as the BASS Awards Committee (Board) ? as it was explained during the official launch?.

The Industry Voting Category ?comes with some of the award categories [and] would be strictly voted for [by] members of the committee. The major reasons being that, such categories are highly technical categories and would require only the Board members to cast votes on that [as] explained during the official launch?.

Entry forms for potential applicant(s) in all 10 regions would be released soon. ?Demo version songs/content will NOT be accepted,? they advised.

?Songs, music videos or content with openly explicit content and or vulgar language will be disqualified as well. Interested applicants can download an entry form from and email together with mp3 version of music to [email protected],? according to organizers.

Alternatively, one can pick and submit an entry form plus two copies of their music at the following media house: Radio Gold (Accra), KFM (Kumasi), Skyy Power (Takoradi) and Diamond Radio (Tamale).
