The LJC Best Of The Year Awards have become a regular event here at The Latin Jazz Corner that regularly adds excitement and anticipation to the end of the year in the Latin Jazz world. The Awards occur during December, creating an opportunity to look back upon the great music from the past year and bulled some momentum into the upcoming 365 days. Initial nominees are provided in early December and then the polls are open for voting. The voting process lasts a little more than two weeks, allowing voters sufficient time to cast their votes. The awards are based upon an open voting process, so nominees are encouraged to invite fans, friends, and more to vote for them. Votes must be considered carefully though; our software logs the user’s IP address, ensuring that that voter only casts one entry in support of their chosen artist. The polls close before the Christmas holiday, and votes are tallied. In the last few days of the New Year, we announce the winners in each category. From that point, the winners are permanently listed on LJC under the Best Of The Year Tab.
