The 2nd Annual Elpy's

The second Platinum Vinyl Awards is finally here. For the sake of my blogger friends on Triberr I have changed the award format. Instead of a blog post every fifteen minutes over one evening, as in the first awards, Triberr, and the expansion of the categories from thirteen to thirty (It would have been 32 but two were dropped for lack of entries) have necessitated a multi format award ceremony. Here are the details. I will publish a blog post today and Sunday. Most of the awards will be just listed with the category and winner. Winners will be posted on Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus. For the complete list of 2011 Platinum Vinyl Award Nominees and the complete Winners List, which lists winners for both 2010 and 2011, click on the highlighted links.
