* This post is a sticky! Keep on scrollin’ for the latest from the visual scene. *
Well friends, we’re now into December and 2013 will soon be coming to a close. Like most years, this was another busy year for visual kei. Some of our favorite bands broke up, while others celebrated years of activities. There were tons of releases, some great new looks, and some very interesting music videos.
To celebrate this past year of visual kei, we want you to nominate your favorite visual bands in a variety of different categories. From now until December 23rd, we’ll be accepting nominations. Then, we’ll be posting a list of the nominations and asking you to vote for the band you think is most deserving of the title.
Let’s take a look at the categories.
- Best Single / Mini-album
- Best Full Album
- Best Music Video
- Weirdest Music Video
- Most Interesting CD Jacket
- Best Costume – can be of a single member, or a band as a whole
- Weirdest Costume – can be of a single member, or a band as a whole
- Best New Band
- Biggest Surprise – good or bad
- Biggest Disappointment
- Best Piece of VK News
- Funniest Photo – from or of any band / band member
- Best Engrish – words / phrases from Twitter, blogs, lyrics, anything goes (be specific!)
There is no limit on how many bands you can nominate, so send in whoever you think should win! When possible, please include a link to a photo, image, or video what you are nominating; especially in the costume and funniest photo categories.
Remember that everything must have been started, released, worn, posted, or announced sometime between January 1st, 2013 and December 31st, 2013. Please be specific in your nominations. For example, for “Best Engrish”, a name isn’t enough. We want the exact phrase you are nominating. Nominations that are too vague, or not from 2013 will not be included.
When submitting your nominations, you do not have to make a nomination for each category. This is only the nomination phase, voting will begin on December 24th.
Okay, are you ready to nominate your favorites? We can’t wait to see what you think has been the biggest, weirdest, and best for 2013!
Nominations are now closed.
