The Ommie Award & Hall of Fame Rules

OMTimes Media through the Creation, Publication, and Promotion of the Conscious Media Award, known as The Ommie Awards (The Ommies), holds a creative contest to bring more writers, musicians, influencers, Conscious Personalities to the forefront of the spiritually centered and consciously diverse World.
The Ommies is a unique opportunity to assist this wave of creators in becoming known, opening the opportunity for new Personalities to be included in the National Scenario and International Market.
We met new authors, musicians, creators, and trendsetters through our contests. We made this practice the main gateway for their books to be published by the publisher.
The Contest is aimed at English-speaking Creators, Trendsetters, and Writers. However, the Ommies also accept beginners, novice writers, authors, Conscious personalities, authors, writers, and musicians who have previously been published. Creators may be residents of any country, as long as they are over 18 years old.
