Blues Music Award Submission


Product Description

 he 2016-17 Submission process is now open!!

There are three components to the submission process. You should do step one when the CD is released. You should do step 2 as early as possible. It is up to you to decide whether to participate in the third option, but if you do, send it in as early as you can.

1. Be sure to send one copy of your release to The Blues Foundation, 421 South Main, Memphis, TN 38103-4464. The earlier you do this the better. What does this accomplish? It informs The Blues Foundation staff that your CD has been released. 

2. If you are a record label or blues musician who released a CD or DVD during the period November 1, 2015 to October 31, 2016,  submit your release for consideration by the nominators. Your CD is eligible by the fact of its release, but it sure doesn't hurt to add it to this list for the convenience of the nominators.

If you "Register an account", you will have the option of logging in and sending your disc(s) to the nominators at a later date. To register MORE THAN one release, simply click on the BMA submission button before proceeding to check out.

3. If you wish to guarantee that your release is sent to the anonymous nominators for Round 1, please select "YES" on the "Ship release to nominators" option below.
