The Vision

The YVAs was born out of our appreciation for our culture of music, dance and entertainment! We began our movement in 2008 and never looked back! We became Jamaica’s premiere award show that fully embraces and incorporates the views of our target demographics, the youth, to celebrate artistes and celebrities. The YVAs allows our fans to tell us who they want to nominate and ultimately who they want to win. We became their voice! As our fans continue to support us over the years, they have grown and evolved and so have we! As we top off this chapter and take the next step in continuing to create the experience they've come to love, we transition into our next chapter: Your View Awards coming in 2018.

With this we will venture into the older millennials who, too, have continued to show us support. The vision of the YVAs is a combination of the BET Awards and the Teen Choice Awards fused into one with Jamaica’s own distinct flavour! Our red carpet experience is the only one of its kind in the region! From the 360-degree live fashion web cam to capturing the hottest red carpet trends, from nail cam to shoe cam, to Live streaming on social media from our fashion panel review! Not to mention the 2016 addition of the YVAs Live and Direct interview platform that featured Jamaica’s first Slow Mo cam (think ENEWS with a Jamaican twist)!

The YVAs red carpet is always a buzz with excitement where screaming fans make it like no other event of its’ kind in Jamaica or the region! This all leads to a night filled with high energy award show performances that our fans and celebrities alike have come to love! With the support of visionary sponsors, our fans, and the entertainment community the YVAs promises to continue to raise the bar on award shows in Jamaica.

The YVAs has grown into a highly anticipated event – an experience rivaled only by that of international award shows! Simply put the Youth View Awards is “the“ awards show for Jamaica and ultimately the region!
