The O Music Awards invites fans to cast votes for their favorite artists in techno-savvy award categories such as Must Follow Artist On Twitter. The ‘O’ stands for “offbeat”, “outrageous” and “online”, as stated on icelandmusic.is.
Björk’s Biophilia was described on the O Music blog as a “massive experience encompassing a series of interactive iPad apps, custom-made instruments, innovative live shows and education programs for children.”
Also nominated for the Digital Genius Award were Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips, DEVO, Girl Talk and the director Chris Milk.
