IBMA Special Awards nominations: deadline 30 June 2010

The International Bluegrass Music Association announces that nominations are currently being accepted from IBMA members for the following awards, to be presented during World of Bluegrass Week (27 Sept.-3 Oct. 2010), in Nashville, Tennessee: Bluegrass Broadcaster of the Year, Print Media Person of the Year, Best Graphic Design, Best Liner Notes, and Bluegrass Event of the Year. The full criteria and procedures for nominations are given here. Nominations must be received by the IBMA not later than 30 June 2010.

The EBMA would like to remind all IBMA members in Europe that European people, events, and achievements are equally eligible for nomination for an IBMA award - don't forget that the European World of Bluegrass Festival won the award for Bluegrass Event of the Year in 2003. It's about time Europe won another award... but that won't happen if the IBMA doesn't receive your nominations.
