ATTN, RECORD LABELS & ARTISTS: Is Your Album Eligible for This Year's Awards?

All professional members of IBMA will receive the first ballot for the
International Bluegrass Music Awards in late May. A reference list of recordings
reported to have been released during the eligibility period for this year’s
awards, will be available at or mailed upon request.

IBMA compiles this information
for members who may not be familiar or have access to actual release dates of
the recordings. Once again, we are requesting the help of record companies,
artists and producer members in compiling the list.

To include a project on the
reference list send the following information in writing for each recording:

  • Recording Title
  • Featured Artist/Group
  • Record Label
  • Catalog Number
  • Commercial Release date (month/day/year recording was first made
    available to consumers).

To be eligible for the 2011
International Bluegrass Music Awards to be presented on September 29, 2011, in
Nashville, Tennessee, a recording project must have had
its first commercial release between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011.

Since IBMA will establish the
Eligible Recordings List before the first ballots are printed and mailed, your
information must be received at the IBMA office in Nashville no later than May
1, 2011.
Even if you have sent IBMA information on
recordings during the past year for review in the newsletter, please supply this
specific information again, since prior info may not have established an exact
release date
