Snapchat is an app that we all know and love. Who doesn’t enjoy sending your BFFs some of the craziest Snapchats, updating your Snapstory, and trying out all of the new Snapchat filters?! Well, for the first time ever in MTV award show history, fans can vote for who they want to see win at the 2017 MTV Woodies using your very own Snapchat account – how cool is that?!
MTV announced today the four categories of nominees for the 2017 MTV Woodies and voting starts today for the “Cover Woodie” category. Fans can get their vote on by using their Snapchat and screen-shotting the photo of their favorite nominee. Each day until March 9th, a new category will go live for fans to vote for.
The winners will be announced at the 2017 MTV Woodies which will take place on March 16th at 11:00 PM ET / PT on MTV live from the South by Southwest Festival. Rapping phenomenon Rick Ross is set to host and perform at the event.
In addition, a special emerging artist “Woodies” telecast will take place prior to the 2017 MTV Woodies starting at 8:00 PM ET and can be viewed via a livestream on woodies.mtv.com. Fans can join in on some extra fun with a MTV Woodies and REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups campaign where you can “co-sign” artists that you think are about to break. Starting on March 9th until the live show on March 16th, you can cosign your favorite MTV Woodies performer by using the custom hashtag #WoodiesCosignARTIST and include the microphone emoji and have the chance to win a free music subscription. The winner of the most mentions will be announced during the live show and all performers at this year’s 2017 Woodies will be announced at a later date.
