Hometown Hero - Sound Submission

Each year, FOH creates the Hometown Hero ballot and tallies votes from subscribers to determine six regional winners. The regional sound companies on the ballot are geographically dispersed across North America, divided into five U.S. regions along with a sixth zone — all of Canada.

Hometown Hero voting needs to take place prior to the voting for the Parnelli Awards themselves. That way, the regional winners can be selected and automatically placed on the final Parnelli Awards ballot. FOH readers can then vote for the “best of the best,” the regional winner most worthy of the national Parnelli Hometown Hero honor.

The 2016 Parnelli Awards are set for Oct. 22 at the Rio in Las Vegas. Nominations for all the general awards categories will be collected during August. The ballot, based on those nominations, will be finalized in early September, and Parnelli voting will continue during the month of September.
