Months ago, we wrote about  MTV’s plan to launch a digital awards contest, and recently, the formerly elusive contest has finally launched a website and is now known as the O Music awards.

According to MTV, the O Music Awards “will find and spotlight the Must Follow Artist on Twitter, the Most Innovative Music Video, the Best Fan Cover, and many more.”

Fans will be able to vote for favorites on an undetermined date by following MTV via twitter at @mtvoma.

Winners will be announced on April 28th in an awards show via omusicawards.com.
