There should be an industry award for self-promotion
These days there is a classical music industry award for almost everything. So it is inexplicable that there is no award for self-promotion: because it seems that talent and experience now count for less than self-promotion. So I hereby propose a new award. The winner will be the classical music personality with the highest score calculated as follows: (number of glowing reviews re-tweeted) x (number of selfies on social media) x (number of self-serving advertorials). Sponsors for the Overgrown Selfie award are welcome.
