Barbados Music Awards: Bajan Reporter Blog Questions Integrity Of Judging Process


Maybe It Is About Who You Know Or Maybe Not…

If the Barbados Music Awards are to really mean something, the judging process has to have integrity.

Ian Bourne at the Bajan Reporter blog is asking some “difficult” questions about the Barbados Music Awards judging process. He also makes some connections between the venue, the contest organization and the Barbados Advocate newspaper.

Ian asked some of the same questions in 2006 when he had a column at the Barbados Advocate. You can read about it in Ian’s weekly column in the Barbados Advocate …. OH….. wait a minute…

Oh yes… I forgot that the Barbados Advocate fired Ian for asking those types of “difficult” questions.

“Difficult questions” on Barbados are defined as “anything that draws attention to the lack of integrity, transparency or accountability of any process. ”

    Nice photos at Bajan Reporter but who are the people in the photos. I don’t know anyone anymore. I want to go home.

  2. Good gosh, me blushes, thanx! The fella used in this one is from Cafe Jungles – he is dressed okay, but the lady’s outfit is …. red, I’ll leave it at that.

    I got the photos in an e-mail, among them and used in the item was Betty West, but I did borrow from BFP and put wisecrack alt-text if you look carefully! ;oD

    I appreciate your looking at the item, I see I made a spelling boo-boo, I am going to correct that now.
