Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards Inc. Awarding Process
The Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards (OEAA) recognizes some of the most talented artists and entertainers in the Omaha area. Voting for the awards is separated into three genres: Visual Arts, Performing Arts and Live Music. To be eligible for an award, artists need to have performed or exhibited work between September 1, 2012 and August 31, 2013.
Online voting for the 8th
Annual OEAAs opened June 7, 2013 and ended on August 31, 2013. After voting closes, accounting firm Hancock & Dana
tallies the nominees in each category. Then, the initial ballots are sent to each genre's review committees to analyze the public nominations to make sure they fit the criteria and finalize the official list of nominees.
The top nominees in each category are then put on a ballot that is sent to members of the OEAA Academy, consisting of over 100 established artists, industry professionals and cultural journalists. These tallied ballots will give us our Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards winners which will be announced at the award show in February of 2014.
