PHOTOS: Sumfest stages inaugural Get Social Awards

The inaugural Caribbean Airlines sponsored Reggae Sumfest Get Social Awards was held on Sunday, on Belmont Road with the operators of the music festival awarding members of the entertainment fraternity for being selected among the top in the respective categories.


The event, although attracting persons mainly in the entertainment industry, had wide representation from many of the other areas in the Jamaican landscape, who joined Josef Bogdanovich and the Sumfest crew in the teaser for the July 14-20 main event.


Winners of the awards were chosen by the highest tabulated online votes, which took place over a number of weeks. The awards were for the interactions with social media for last year.


There was also a special Icon Of The Stage Award, which was given to legendary individuals within the entertainment fraternity. Those who got the award were Buju Banton, Beres Hammond, Beenie Man, Marion Hall, Bounty Killer, Sizzla Kalonji, Shabba Ranks, Yellow Man, Super Cat and Skyjuice.


Only Spice and Miss Kitty won more than one award. Spice won for Best Female Dancehall Artiste and Best Publicity Stunt, while Kiss Kitty collected for People's Choice and Best Influencer.
