Welcome back as the Vocaloidism Awards marches on. Did you know that our site had over 950,000 views in 2010? That’s more than triple what we got last year! I want to thank everyone who visited us over the past 12 months. I hope you continue your patronage and bring a friend. :3
Anyway, we have 4 more awards to introduce and for you to vote on. Last week’s awards were all about the music (which you can still vote on), but this week, we focus on some of the impactful images of the year and bring back a couple of awards from our inaugural event.
Best New Producer
Last year, Hachi narrowly edged out tokuP for the honor of top newcomer. 2010 brought another talented crop of freshman Producers and you get to choose who was the best. The nominees are:
Album of the Year
While the newcomers got their feet wet, some of our veterans tried to top another kind of chart: Oricon. CD’s still sell, especially when the music’s good. Here are your nominees:
- EXIT TUNES presents Vocalogenesis
- Aimai Elegy+ 「愛迷エレジー」 by Deco*27
- Aku no Oukoku ~Evils Kingdom~ 「悪ノ王国〜Evils Kingdom〜」 by mothy_AkunoP
- Kocchi Muite Baby/Yellow by ryo
- Souaisei Riron by Deco*27
- magnet -favorites plus- by minato
- Hatsune Miku No Shoushitsu by cosMo@BOUSOUP
- Vocaloid Ha Shuumatsu Dori No Yume Wo Miruka?
NOTE: Due to an oversight in the original version, the list of nominees has been edited and the poll reset.

Last year, Campanella got the nod over Nebula and LOL. This year, we could have easily had twice as many nominees as what we ended up with. Here they are in all their embedded glory.
