LJ Diamond Awards

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 a lack of votes. Those categories were the Rap & RB and Reggae genre, those trophies still sit in her studio today.

 

We Are Back 2021

We waited 2 years and now we are back!

This year we had a semi-strong come back for the #LJ Diamond Awards, even with that said there is so much room for growth. The awards were a success this year although the votes were less than in previous years, we still had a blast. This year the name was changed to just the "LJ Diamond Awards".  This year we made it strictly about the music especially with LJDNRadio now on the scene. This bought out the Flava we had 5 categories of music genres. This year the trophies were bigger and the promotional package was awesome! There was one downside this year that was we only received 2 votes for the video award and that was not enough for the competition therefore the video awards were disqualified. But next year they will be back with a bang! Next year we will be adding the"Most Popular Podcaster" to the awards, so if you want to be nominated you will need to start adding your podcast. It's easy to do just go to LJDNPodcast.com. Last, this year we attempted to broadcast live on YouTube which did not go as well as we planned but.... the show must go on. We made it into audio which you can hear on LJDNLive #DJ Noir Raven show. Thank your for your listening support.

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.
