The nominations have been selected, and now it’s up to you to choose who should win trophies at this year’s Cincinnati Entertainment Awards (CEAs). 

Back for the 15th year, the CEAs are decided by public voting (save the Critical Achievement Awards, which are chosen by the nominating committee) and the awards will be given out Sunday, Nov. 20 at the Madison Theatre in Covington. You can place your votes here.

The deadline for voting is Friday, November 11 at noon.

Greater Cincinnati acts from all genres active from October 2010-October 2011 were eligible. The time frame for “Album of the Year” (which, really, should probably be “Recording of the Year”) consideration is the same. Specialists in many facets of the local music community — from writers and bloggers to radio hosts and club owners — were asked to be a part of the nominating committee.

Artists receiving multiple nominations this year include Walk the Moon, the recent RCA Records signees who scored as many nominations as they possibly could, with five, including Artist of the Year and Album of the Year. Indie Pop faves The Seedy Seeds, who’ve been nominated several times over the past few years, scored four CEA.11 nominations, while rocker Brian Olive, Electronica group Skeetones, Garage Pop trio The Greenhornes and Indie foursome Pomegranates each earned three nominations.
