WNC Video Music Awards
The WNC Video Music Awards took place Oct 16th at the Fine Arts Theater. Each year more and more local musicians and film makers are collaborating to create new and exciting visual statements. Yet there is limited opportunity for them to publicly showcase their efforts. Now these artists had another forum to get well deserved exposure and support their local community as well. By entering this new competition they could win prizes and participate in an Eblen Charities fundraiser at the same time.
Winners included: 1st Place: Andalyn Lewis $300
2nd Place: Marc Stutzell $200
3rd Place: David O Clegg $100 (donated back to charity)
4th Place: Leeda Lyric Jones $50 gift cert
5th Place: C.Shreve $50 gift cert
6th Place: American Gonzos $50 gift cert
Judging was by ballots collected from all artists, fans, and friends attending the showcase.
