ETC Punjabi to hold second Punjabi Music Awards on Feb 27

ETC Channel Punjabi has announced the second annual Punjabi Music Awards 2005 on February 27 at PAP Grounds, Jalandhar. The event will be telecast live on both ETC Channel Punjabi and Alpha TV Punjabi.

The award ceremony has a total of 26 different categories covering every aspect of the Punjabi music industry. The channel honours various categories ranging from singing, composing and music direction to choreography among others. There will also be performances by Gurdas Mann, Jazzy B and Sukhshinder Shinda among others on the award night.

Commenting on the award ceremony, Rabindra Narayan, President, ETC Channel Punjabi, said, “We are grateful to the entire Punjabi music industry which supported the first edition of Punjabi Music Awards last year wholeheartedly, and we look forward to their full support this year too in making this event an even bigger success story.”

Rajiee M. Shinde, VP-Programming, ETC Channel Punjabi, said, “The selection procedure is fair, transparent, unbiased and is modeled on the lines of international awards of repute in which the general public and an elite panel of judges will jointly select the winners.”

The selection process has been a two-month long exercise. It started in December 2004 with the channel inviting nominations from music companies. A team of veterans decided the final nominees based on pre-decided criteria. The names of the nominees were disclosed on ETC Channel Punjabi, Alpha TV Punjabi and through leading newspapers. The voting was then made open to the public and the final selection of winners is made on the basis of the voting done by the public and the panel of judges.
