Posted by Marcus J. Moore on Dec. 31, 2010 at 9:30 am

Beginning tomorrow, you can nominate your favorite local artists for the 2011 DMV Awards, organized by promoter Dre All Day since 2007 and given to performers each year to recognize their contributions within the regional music scene.

Last yearChelsey Green—aka “The Green Violinist”—won the best alternative artist award and TCB was named best go-go group. Whitefolkznetted the best male rapper award, and his brash F*ck Your Mixtape was named the year’s best mixtape.

This year, you can submit your nominations online and via text message; there’s also a “power ballot” for local music journalists and industry types. The top seven nominees from each category will then be sent to a panel of 15 judges, who will determine the winners.

Here’s the online ballot. To vote via text, type “DMV” and insert a space. Then, type the corresponding number code and the artist or group you’re voting for to 313131.

The nomination deadline is Feb. 14. The show is scheduled for March 5 at the Hyatt Hotel at Crystal City, 2799 Jefferson Davis Hwy in Arlington.
