We Are Back 2021
Here's A Little History About the #LJDiamondAwards
Our very first award was given in March 2015 for the 2014 Nominees and our very first winners Cosmic Crash for "Most Popular Indie Music Artist" and Mike Aloia of American Hearts Radio for "Most Popular Interview" on the LJDNShow. Every year after that there were always 2 awards given away the winners are always chosen by the artist that received the most votes up until 2019. In 2019 Lina Jones decided to have the awards in music genres which was a huge success. Two categories did not win a trophy due to lack of votes. Those categories were the Rap & RB and Reggae genre, those trophies still sit in her studio today.
2019 Awards was a struggle for a tiny company, so many votes came in it was difficult to keep up with the count but when your business is your passion, you manage. Although successful Lina was drained and could not keep up with the growth and therefore decided to cancel the next two years awards. But now, she is back with a small team and assistant from MPowered Studio with a "BombAss" promotional package for our Diamond Indie Artist, and an awesome promotional package prize for the Grand winner for "The Most Popular Music Artist Award". Plus our fan appreciation award the LJDN Social Media Fan award is back too.
We don't want you to miss a thing so whenever you finish reading go to our awesome award packages.
2017 Music Awards Finalist this was the last year the award would be just for one artist. In 2018 LJDNRadio was founded.
The music played in 2018 set the standard for 2019, which is the year LJDNRadio was founded. At that time the station was all Independent music.
The response from the different genres sparked attention across the globe to Italy where Independent Artist Davide Moscato made headlines.

Trophy Design Changes
Over the years picking just the right trophy was a challenge, our budget did not allow for Lina to have it custom made, that was cool because there were many beautiful trophies to choose from, as you can see from the pictures below. 2017 Award was the most expensive because Lina did not want the acrylic, she wanted the glass trophy, because she chose the glass trophy the budget did not allow for multiple trophies. That was the only year we only had one trophy, we learned that lesson quickly. However, we fell in love with the "Reach For the Stars" model which we will keep until we can have our own design.
