The 2nd Wish 107.5 Music Awards (WMA) will be more than just an evening of music and entertainment. The FM station that puts philanthropy at its core will also be granting over Php 1 million to key charitable institutions.
This “wish granting” will be one of the main highlights of the 2nd WMA, which will happen on January 16, Monday, at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.
The winners of the WMA’s major categories will be given the chance to donate Php 100,000 to their chosen beneficiaries. This is apart from the cash prize worth Php 25,000 each of the winning artists will receive.
These categories include Best WISHclusive Performances (by a Group or a Duo/Young/Female/Male Artist), Wish Original Songs of the Year (by a Group or a Duo/Female/Male Artist) and Wish Artists of the Year (Young/ Female/ Male).
Apart from these major awards, the 2nd WMA will also honor OPM artists through the following minor and special awards: Wish Promising Artist, Best Wish Cover, Wish Reactors’ Choice Award and WISHclusive Viral Video of the Year.
Meanwhile, the highest citations will be given to the first batch of members of the WISHclusive Elite Circle. This group will be composed of artists whose performances on the Wish 107.5 YouTube Channel have garnered at least 10 million views.
Fans and supporters cancast their votes online through the WMA website, www.wish1075.com/wishawards, until 12 noon of January 16. Online votes will comprise 50% of a nominee’s total score while the other 50% will come from the votes of a select panel of judges.
