The Music Awards of Nagaland
Celebrating Naga Music
In spite of an abundance of talent Naga musicians remain in obscurity due to lack of exposure.

In order to let the viewers choose the Song of the Year and also enable nominees to earn something for their hard work and creativity the Native Trax Society came up with the idea of the POM Campaign.
Under this campaign, voting cards are sold throughout Nagaland. The group/ artiste which receives the highest number of votes through public voting wins the Song of the Year Award. Each nominee also receives a percentage of the sales of cards submitted in its name. Our nominees have earned an amount of Rs. 3,45,644/- (Rupees three lakhs forty five thousand six hundred and forty four) in the last two years.
Encouraged by the positive response, we are planning to continue the POM campaign this year too. Nominees will receive 20% of the POM card sales. Thus just by entering the Music Awards everyone stands a chance of earning a handsome amount even if they donít win!
