DMAF Registration Info
Please note that we do not accept new voting members between Phase 2 and Phase 3 voting, so even though you may apply for registration, you will not be eligible to vote on the Final Ballot. Phase 2 voting ended on February 7, 2021, so NO NEW APPLICATIONS ARE CURRENTLY BEING PROCESSED. All applications will be held until after the 2021 Winners have been announced during the live stream show on April 11, 2021. Full membership benefits and how to send in an optional annual $20 donation are outlined at the bottom of this page in Step 3.
To nominate and vote for the Detroit Music Awards please read through the following registration instructions carefully. If you do not complete all of the requirements (including website links and references) your application will automatically be rejected. We cannot verify your involvement in the music industry without actual links.
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 references.
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. 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!
