The Prayze Factor People's Choice Awards
Founded and Produced by Apostle Dr. Teresa Jordan (affectionately known as Pastor T) is a platform specifically and strategically formatted to bring maximum exposure to the inspired artists movement. The Prayze Factor People's Choice Awards (Prayze Factor) is designed to expose faith based arts on a national/international level with major market radio, television and industry exposure. Nominations should be for artists that are seriously looking to gain more exposure, increase their fan base and make their music/ministry more relevant in the gospel and inspirational industry. This is a “fan driven” platform so artists will be required to engage their fans in voting, commenting, promoting…etc. their ministries. While this is a friendly awards competition it is more important that artists utilize the platform to draw those that are unaware of their ministry to the table where they can not only experience the ministry but experience the realness of Christ.There are two rounds during a period of Prayze Factor promotions. Each round is designed to accomplish the aforementioned goals for the artists but it takes work. Nominees will be afforded several opportunities for promotions of their ministries, opportunities to engage their fans and opportunities to show the nations the strength of performing arts ministry. To maximize full potential of this platform, artists must be in the frame of mind that God deserves their very best every step of the way and without excuse. Those that grasp and understand that, are rewarded greatly by the time the seasons grand finale’ airs as their presence in the gospel community is greatly advanced. Prayze Factor is at the top of every search engine which in turns puts every participant front and center for the industry and world to see.
Past seasons of Prayze Factor has yielded over 70 million votes from fans and finalists gained serious leverage in the gospel industry as many of them were picked up on other national platforms (i.e. The Stellar Awards, The Rhythm of Gospel Awards, The Excellence In Christian Music Awards...etc) and agencies, radio/television networks nationwide took interests in the finalists granting them extended exposure via various interviews and additional rotation for those that were vocalists and had cd projects out, some signed distribution deals, PR/Marketing deals and so much more. Overall, Prayze Factor certainly has proven that it is a stepping stone to national and international next level miracles for any participant that is ready and positioned to move forth in their performing arts ministry.
To be nominated on the current season of the Prayze Factor People's Choice Awards nominees have to have a single, ep, or full project already released. Nominations can be submitted by record labels, marketing firms, management, booking agents, radio/tv networks, or the general public. Nominations are handled and vetted through The International Music Association (T.I.M.A.) www.jointima.org and ballot announcements are made via T.I.M.A.'s Managing Directors in April of each voting year.
Voting is done via online polling and is a popularity round of elimination by the general public. Nominees are added to a public voting poll and the general public openly votes and promotes their favorite nominees during round one of each voting year. The top nominees in each category will advance to the Final Round and winners in each category are announced during the highly anticipated Prayze Factor weekend of celebration.
