  KISS MY WAMi 2003 Concludes
WAM's annual original contemporary music festival celebrated its 10th birthday in 2003. The metro component of the Kiss My WAMi Festival ran from Thursday September 4 through to Sunday September 14.

Kiss My WAMi is a uniquely West Australian event which celebrates the talents and achievements of the local music industry. In 2003 there were over 100 shows - licensed, all ages, regional, metropolitan, schools, university - as well many other special events and new initiatives.

Festival highlights in 2003 included the Kiss My WAMi Awards recognising excellence and acknowledging contributions made to the WA Music Industry over the past 12 months, an All Ages Program featuring over 50 Schools and All Ages Shows (climaxing in the massive All Ages Closing Party on September 14 headlined by Lash at HQ), a massive Regional Program taking in the Kimberley (for the first time) South West, Pilbara and everywhere in between, Workshops, Seminars and much more besides, and you had the most extensive Kiss My WAMi Festival ever!

KISS MY WAMI 2003 - A Guide to the Kiss My WAMi Industry Nominations
  :: A GUIDE TO THE KISS MY WAMi INDUSTRY NOMINATIONS ::

Every year people have questions/ complaints/ concerns/ interest in what the whole Kiss My WAMi nomination process is about. To clarify things a bit, Executive Director Paul Bodlovich explains the categories and the processes involved this year.

:: THE CATEGORIES ::
This year, we’ve reduced the number of categories that are included in the Kiss My WAMi Awards. We keep getting hassled about the fact that there were too many, so we’ve done something about it.

Last year there were 41, this year there are 32. Given that there are a few new categories which have been added, what exactly has happened?

Well, firstly we’ve taken the gender specific instrumentalists out, but left separate male and female vocalist categories because there is an obvious difference there. Removing the gender stuff was as the result of being told by any number of people for the last few years that it was irrelevant.

All of these categories have been grouped together as “Craft Categories”, and will be public voted awards.

Next, we have the “General Awards”, also publicly voted, and these are largely as they were previously but with the welcome addition of the “Most Popular Original Music Event” category.

One thing that we’d like to point out is that band websites should be included in the website category as well as general/ portal/ you beaut something for everyone music sites.

Also, the “New Act” category should only include acts which started gigging or whatever else it is that they may do in the past twelve months.

The “Genre Categories” are interesting, and again are public voted. We’ve added “Urban Music”, which is a term that incorporates Hip Hop and R’n’B. We’ve also split the electronic category into “Electronic Producers”, based on studio work, and “Live Electronic Act” specifically aimed at recognising live performance in the electronic scene. The folk and blues categories are now the “Blues and Roots” category (a term we picked up from ARIA). Jazz, World and Country are all self explanatory.

Indie, Pop, Rock, Funk, Punk and Metal were all separate categories last year – this year there are only two to encompass these sub-genres – “Heavy Rock”, which will obviously include all facets of metal, hard rock, maybe even some of the more full on punk that’s going around, and generally stuff that is, as the name implies, heavy. “Indi Rock” encompasses the indie, pop, funk rock, pub rock, oz rock, cock rock, sock rock, paper/scissors/rock rock and some of the less full on punk that’s going around.

If you think that it’d be nice for all the sub-genres that live under these categories to have a separate category, well you’ve got a point, and we agonise over exactly that every year. However, in each of these categories (and we mean all of them, whether its country, electronic or indi rock) there are potentially dozens of sub, and sub-sub genres, and which should we have chosen? Go to a website like mp3.com and check out their genre listing – its staggering. So, we have to draw the line somewhere and we think we have it as right as it can be.

If you have a particular complaint to air though, make sure you air it, preferably to us – wam@wam.asn.au - and it will all help in the feedback we use for next year’s WAMi’s.

The Kiss My WAMi CD compilation will be based on these genre categories this year, and submissions have been asked for in this way. The one exception to this is that the two “electronic” categories have been merged, basically because it makes sense to do so.

Finally, we have the “Industry Voted Awards”.

We’ve combined the “Record Producer/ Engineer” categories, added the term “presenter” to the reviewer category so that it encompasses radio as well as press (termed the “Media Award”), and added an award for “Original Band Management”. The “Music Photographer” award should not be restricted to press photographers, there are photographers around doing album cover shots/ promo shots etc who also deserve recognition.

And, the winner of the “Golden WAMi” in recognition of contribution to the industry will now be inducted into a “Hall of Fame” and presented with a Life Membership to WAM, which will also be done retrospectively for past winners.

:: THE PROCESS ::
This week we are undertaking a mailout to a list of nearly two thousand music industry participants in WA for their nominations for the Kiss My WAMi Awards, the Kiss My WAMi gigs, and Kiss My WAMi CD submissions.

The process is, for each of these in turn-

For the public voted awards, we accept the nominations from the industry, tally them up, pick the top four and publish them on a voting form in Xpress and The West Australian in August. The winner is the one with the most votes. Simple.

For the industry voted awards, the first part is the same, but instead of publishing the nominees we undertake an industry poll to the same lists that we used for the initial mailout (although by email), which presents the top four nominees in each category for industry votes. The one with the most votes wins. Again, simple.

In both cases the more people that nominate/ vote, the fairer and more representative the whole thing will be, so make sure you are involved and make sure that other people you know are as well.

For the Kiss My WAMi gigs, we simply tally up the votes received in each category and base the whole of our programming around that, with the inclusion of some of the more high profile acts around (ie those with substantial national/ international exposure, and they do this as a rule at vastly reduced fees to what they normally demand) for a whole range of good reasons. The categories on this form are different to the other two, and are based more on previous years’. The main reason for this is that we are able to program gigs more specifically within certain genres because of the nature of the local live scene, and we felt that these categories still quite reasonably reflected that.
Again the best way to be involved is to fill out the forms and send them back, and ask other people to do the same.

For the Kiss My WAMi Compilation CD, we call for submissions in eight separate categories, and each category is assessed by a separate panel with particular expertise in that area. We will be publicising who the judges are for the first time, as a further step down the path of ensuring transparency in all of our activities.

Each panel will be asked to submit their candidates to WAM in ranked order, to enable us to determine the cutoff point when it comes time to fitting the whole lot onto plastic. They will also be given the right to disallow songs that they feel are in the wrong category, however this will be based on the same information that is provided above to ensure that apples are being compared with apples. Also, as always we will ensure that conflict of interest provisions are included in the panels’ guidelines.

And, WAM reserves the right to approach up to three acts in each category to be included at our discretion, based on significant national or international success and profile. This helps enormously with the promotion of the festival as a whole.

Again (just to stress the point), the important first step is to actually send something in, but its also important to remember that while its great being included on the compilation its by no means the end of the world to miss out.

Well, hopefully this has explained a few things. If it hasn’t, ask us. wam@wam.asn.au.
Ph: 08 - 9227 7962.
1800 007 962 (Freecall Regional WA Only).
Fax: 08 – 9328 7711

And if you want to tell us something, you can use the same numbers.

See you in September.

KISS MY WAMI 2003 CD - CD JUDGING GUIDELINES
 

For the CD track selection process, all the judges were given the following Judging Guidelines:

Voting: Each song is to be given a vote between 0 and 4 with '0' being a song you don't believe deserves to be considered and '4' being a song you believe strongly deserves to be considered. Once all songs have been listened to votes are to be tallied & divided by the number of judges scoring (see Conflict Of Interest below), with a combination of the top scoring songs and all songs receiving at least one '4' from any judge to make an original shortlist. A final list of up to 20 songs (ordered 1 - 20) is then to be reached via voting and discussion (keep this documented on attached sheets).

Discussion & Debate: As you're listening no doubt discussion will be entered into about individual tracks, particularly when deciding on the final shortlist. This is an important and natural part of the process. As all judges are encouraged to have an equal say, please don't be afraid to speak your mind, and conversely, try not to dominate opinion on your panel.

Conflict Of Interest: Along the way you may come across a song you recognise as belonging to an artist you have an association with (either favourable or otherwise). It is important that this is declared immediately to your co-judges, and should it be deemed a conflict of interest, you may be required to leave the room and not score on that song. Conflict of interest is regarded as having co-written or performed on a song, or if there can be seen to be any gain for you via association with the song or artist.

Production Quality: As selected tracks will be put on the Kiss My WAMi promotional CD, production quality does play an important part in the process. If you feel the track is not of broadcast quality, then realistically it won't make the CD and isn't worth consideration.

Listening Time: Judging of this sort is a long process, however it is important that each entry is given a fair go. Songs do not have to be listened to in their entirety, but they should be 'searched' through to enable judges to get a more overall impression of the artist's vision.

Qualities To Look Out For: As a general rule you will come to your own conclusions of what makes the grade according to your category. Originality through music, melody and lyrics (where applicable) are the only artistic guidelines WAM request you to adhere to.
