The channel has thrown open the polls to viewers from 12 November, through an extensive integrated marketing campaign involving TV, radio, print, internet and retail promotions. It has roped in 350 outlets including retail stores, restaurants, clubs, campuses and malls in 10 cities for the campaign.

MTV is also kicking off on the ground marketing activities this month with eight showcase parties at nightspots in the Philippines, Taiwan, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Indonesia, Korea, Thailand and India. The Awards will also be breaking the mould with an innovative award design, made in pewter and enclosing a tiny multimedia screen that plays a short tribute tape to honour the winner.

Ronan Keating will host the awards, along with Mandy Moore

The awards function will be hosted by Ronan Keating and Mandy Moore, while members from the world acclaimed Cirque Du Soleil will entertain audiences during the show with performances, while funkmeisters Groove Armada will spin their brand of cool tunes at the post show party.
