Nominations open for Alternative Power 100 Music List

Bjork Digital

Nominations are now open for the Alternative Power 100 Music List 2018, launched last year by Shesaid.so – a global network of women working in the music industry.

Created ‘to challenge archaic industry practices’, last year’s inaugural list recognised artists including Bjork (pictured) and Grace Jones, alongside industry players including PRS Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer Vanessa Reed and Kickstarter Head of Music, Molly Neuman.

This year’s theme is ‘intersections’ and will focus on, ‘traditionally under-represented communities such as people of color, the LGBTQ community, those from lower economic backgrounds or with disabilities.’

Entrants may nominate more than one person and can also nominate themselves.

Speaking about the list, shesaid.so founder Andreea Magdalina said: ‘It is an effort to challenge the traditional definition of power and give it a new, alternative meaning.

‘We aim for it to act as a positive contribution to the diversity conversation and encourage solutions that will result in growth and progress across the board.’

Nominations close on 1 March and the list will be announced on 8 March.
