2014 Blues Music Award Submission Process Opens
If you are a record label or blues musician who will have released a CD or DVD during the period November 1, 2012 to October 31, 2013, now is the time to take the steps that will help you get consideration for a 2014 Blues Music Award. There are three components to the submission process. Step 1-as soon as you have a physical copy of the CD or DVD, send a copy to The Blues Foundation. Step 2-register it online at your earliest opportunity. Step 3-if you wish to send your release to the nominators, send it in as early as you can.

We cannot stress enough the importance of taking care of this business and doing so at your earliest opportunity. Nominators have hundreds of releases to listen to in order to narrow their list to their top three in each BMA category. The best way to ensure that they will have the time to give your music a good listen is to get on their radar as early as possible. If you have not yet done step 1 or 2, do it today. If you are going to do step 3, do it today. If you have a release that is still to come, do each of the steps you decide to do the earliest you can. Procrastinate at your own peril!!
