Not only will they sound just like the real performer but will have produced a show that gives the impression the audience is almost witnessing the 'real deal'.
If you have got what it takes, then choose the is category and ENTER NOW!!
New for 2018, this fun category is open to anyone who is either a look-a-like in the tribute world or indeed 'photo doubles' for anyone really famous.
If you are a photo double for perhaps Prince Harry or Megan Markle, Ed Sheerhan to Prime Minister Theresa May, or even the music mogul himself Simon Cowell, together with his X-Factor colleagues, this is your chance to submit your photos and possibly join other 'A-Listers' at the glittering Awards Ceremony.
With opportunities in media and corporate functions, this could be an opportunity to step into a new career and also the possibility of being signed to major agencies.
Sound & Lighting is perhaps the most important aspect to any Tribute Artists show.
Without the finest quality sound and the mood changing atmosphere of 'well thought out lighting plots', a performance can reduce the show to the worst possible customer experience.
The best tribute acts will have invested in both to make sure their show is of the highest quality.
Alternatively, they will use a dedicated 'third party' company to provide the necessary expertise in producing outstanding results.
So, if you want to enter this category or recommend your regular 'third party' supplier for this award, ENTER NOW!
