DMAF Registration Info
We are currently not accepting new membership applications until after this year's show in April. All eligible members had to be registered to vote prior to Phase 2 ending on February 19, 2023.
If you would still like to be considered for membership in the Detroit Music Awards Foundation, please complete the steps below. We will start processing new forms in early May 2023. Incomplete or incorrect registration forms will not be considered, so please read carefully.
Determine if you are eligible to nominate and vote by reading the following requirements:
Detroit Music Awards voters must be able to demonstrate their involvement with the music industry and be actively working within the geographic area defined by our submissions process. Musicians, managers, booking agents, media representatives*, club management, sound technicians and other music industry professionals are all eligible to apply as long as they substantiate their work with outside references. *Media representatives are defined as accredited journalists or other members of print, broadcast or digital media with an on-air presence/platform
STEP 2: Complete the registration form
Music Industry Affiliation
Please tell us what your affiliation is to the Detroit/Metro Area music industry. You MUST include at least one link (2-3 preferred) to social media pages and/or websites that include your name as part of the affiliation which you're claiming. If you do not include links for us to verify, your application will be denied. This does not mean ASCAP or BMI - we need to know what you DO in the Detroit music industry. Again “Media Representatives” are defined as accredited journalists or other members of print, broadcast or digital media with an on-air presence.
These applications are reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis and we must be able to determine that you are a music industry professional actively living and working in SE Michigan. Thank you!
Read the following membership information and learn the benefits of membership:
Members are entitled to special benefits in addition to voting, including invitations to networking events, early access to tickets for the Detroit Music Awards Ceremony, free admission to showcases and to workshops.
