The new channel is targeted at young people who form part of the UMA database – socially, virally and via YouTube of course . This service will consolidate material in one place and attempt to harness the UMA’s extensive fanbase . The UMA’s was one of the first awards ceremonies in Europe to banish panel voting and instead give the POWER back to music fans to nominate and vote for their favourites. For 12 years it has amassed a database of over 3.5 million music fans which is deemed one of the biggest in Europe. The UMA’s is also the only awards ceremony to be held in 6 countries including the USA, Jamaica, France, and London.
