Official Rules

Award categories will be decided by the Producers of the Louisville Music Awards and are subject to change, year to year, at the discretion of the Producers.

A Louisville Music Award can be awarded to an artist, band or music professional who is from or has strong ties to the Louisville/Southern Indiana area.  Additional criteria for a nomination is intentionally kept fairly loose so as to include a more diverse representation of the Louisville music scene.

The Producers and its Advisory Committee will submit finalists to the public for voting.  

The finalists in each category will be notified by the Producers and will submit links to their music in a timely fashion.  The links will be provided to the voting public for review.

Results are tabulated and reviewed by the Producers and not subject to negotiation.  

The sponsors and non-profit partners of the Louisville Music Awards are helping make our event a success but have nothing to do with the voting or nominations.
