The voting steps are straightforward; to listen to music and vote for your favourite tracks, you first need to register either via the Djooky website or app. Once registered you can use the Djooky app to stream tracks and cast your votes in the contest by using the app’s virtual currency — ‘Voting Points (VPs)’, which are the means of supporting a track in the Djooky Music Awards.
It is worthy of note that all registered users are credited with 100 ‘Voting Points’ for each round of the competition, which can then be used to vote for the songs in each round of the competition and you can redistribute them across different tracks as much as you like up until the end of the round.
Based on the number of VPs, the top 3 entries from the national and continental competitions go through each round – in the global round, the nominated panel of judges award 50% of the total vote.
Remember that the winner of the global round each season receives $10,000 in cash and a recording session at Capitol Studios, Los Angeles, post-lockdown while the first runner up gets a cash prize of $5,000 and third prize is $2,000.What are you waiting for?
