THE VOTING PROCESS
STEP 1: APPLY AND UPLOAD CONTENT
We invite you to fill out a short application form telling us about you and your music.
This application then goes behind the scenes, for review by our panel of active industry professionals. The form is easy to use, and completely free from start to finish.
If you're waiting on some recordings or feel as though you're not ready just yet, don't worry, you still have plenty of time.
STEP 2: INDUSTRY JUDGING PANEL
Judging happens in waves. Wave one ensures that every application is reviewed by our panel of industry professionals. If a profile is advanced by two judges, the artist is progressed into the next round.
The next round sees all of the successful nominees put back in front of our voting panel, only this time, the number of judges required to advance an act increases.
We will continue this voting process until the judges have collectively agreed upon one winner within each of the categories, to be announced on the night.
Whilst the official judging is taking place behind the scenes with our voting panel, we will launch an unofficial fan chart.
This is a chance for your fans to get behind you and support your music. The more support you receive, the higher your music will chart.
Although this chart has no influence over the official vote, it's a great opportunity to get your fans involved and have some fun in the build up to the Awards.
To take part, we'll get you started with a free app courtesy of Muzivo and you'll be pleased to hear that this app will be yours to keep.
