The music market is not just "American Music", it‘s also "Bollywood", Europe, the Middle East, Australia and Asia. But currently, there is no truly global award ceremony honoring music from all parts of the world.
Internet has turned the world into a village, and young people are open to new music styles and cultures. It's about time a music awards show responds to this!
ORYX MUSIC AWARDS
From Hollywood to Bollywood. From K-Pop to Kiwi. The ORYX Music Awards are the only truly global awards!
Following the spirit of ORYX, the awards ceremony will take place during the annual ORYX Festival when artists and fans from around the globe get together offline (on location) and online (via Internet).
There is no jury or committee determining the award recipients. Everything is strictly audience driven.
The online/offline best-selling artists from all regions around the globe get nominated based on their sales by region and genre; and the global audience elects the award recipients.
We understand that television has to cater to a domestic mainstream audience, while the Internet user is expecting a wide variety to choose from. So we developed the concept of simultaneous performances.
To realize such a complex live show, we will team up with experienced production partners for staging and broadcasting this spectacular event.
Our concept of simultaneous performances allows customized telecasts for each market.
A less mainstream audience can access all simultaneous live-streams online, of course. And, if you prefer to watch all performances of this evening, the award ceremony's streams get archived immediately for later watching.
The most well-known show, the "Grammy Awards" are as USA focused as the "Oscars"; and the worldwide versions of the "MTV Awards" are too fragmented geographically and much too diversified.
There is no truly global award ceremony honoring music from all parts of the world, and therefore the ORYX Music Awards face no direct competition.
The ORYX Festival already shows social responsibility through its ORYX Culture & Education Summit (OCES). Also, the ORYX Music Awards will have a charity aspect, to help make this world a little better.
Every year a different cause of topical interest is supposed to inspire the motto, but it always has a global approach and is decided on by the audience, in accordance with the ORYX spirit. Under a general motto, such as for example "ORYX for Education" or "ORYX for Peace", possible projects will be presented from all parts of the world, and the audience decides and supervises. Full transparency and controlling is vital!
"From KNOWING to UNDERSTANDING to RESPECTING to INTERACTING to PEACE."
