Each year in June the Ohio Hip Hop Awards & Music Conference hosts a talent showcase in Akron/Kent, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, Canton, Toledo, and Youngstown. The top 5 scores from across the state will win a performance slot on one of the biggest stages for Ohio talent - the main event of the Ohio Hip Hop Awards & Music Conference. This is the primary way in which we select who will perform at the main event in September. Winners also get tickets to the awards show for them and a few guests, as well as the benefit of being marketed and promoted in all forms of advertising used to promote the show.
