Random Awards For Underground Genius- Coming Soon

The Underground Genius awards can't truly represent the voice of the Underground without your recommendations, yays and nays. To collect your voices, we're accepting your suggestions for each category grassroots style, in the comments before we put up the polls for the popular vote.
Underground Genius Awards will be blessedly random rather than happening only once a year, to give opportunity to emerging artists that may pop up at any moment. The system also allows for the element of surprise that we love so much. Banners for winners will be uploaded and made available when the winners are announced.

The candidates with the most votes will be voted on for a short period and announced in the Modern Myth issues for Purple Mag, as well as onsite here at

More than one candidate can win in each category.
