Music submitted for consideration for a Radio Alliance Award is reviewed and selected for nomination by a private, non-biased panel of music/industry professionals.
Votes are tabulated by a private company.
IGARA Employees/Staff are NOT part of the nominee selection process or the voting process.
Once your submission is received it will be reviewed for possible selection to Round 1 - Public Voting, based on the criteria set forth in the music submission guidelines.
Round 1 - Public Voting: The official selections will be posted on the IGARA Group page and the IGARA website. This listing will show all artists who have been selected to be part of the Public Voting process. The listing will be narrowed down to the top 10 in each category.
Round 2- Affiliate Voting: The top 10 from Round 1 will be voted on by the IGARA Affiliates (Radio Stations, TV Stations, etc.). After Affiliate voting, the top 10 will be narrowed down to the top 6 in each category. The top 6 will be the official Radio Alliance Awards nominees.
The Radio Alliance Awards Nominees will receive an official nominee letter via email. The Nominee List will be posted on the IGARA website and group page. Nominees with the highest number of votes tabulated, for each category, will receive their award during the official Radio Alliance Award ceremony.
