The winner will also be escorted backstage to meet Christian music artists.
“With fan voting and now this unique chance for involvement in the awards presentation itself, the 2009 DOVE AWARDS show is involving the Christian music audience in a whole new way and we're excited to be a part of this process. TANGLE, with their unique combination of promotional capabilities, technical expertise and a focus on social media, is the ideal partner to help us make this contest a success!” said GMC VP/Digital Media PHILLIP MANWARING.
Entrants will submit video entries on TANGLE.COM, telling why they should be named the “DOVES SUPER FAN” and what is unique about their ability to present these awards and be given this opportunity.
