Heavy Music Awards 2019 Voting Panel

The Heavy Music Awards panel is comprised of around 600 individuals who make their home somewhere in the music industry. The size, and the variety of the roles represented by this panel are a key part of ensuring the HMAs are as democratic as possible.

Each of these individuals is asked to nominate their three favourites in each category – their nominations are tallied up, and the top seven in each category are finalists, which the public then votes on. There is no other factor in the process.

If you’re interested in joining the panel for HMA20, please fill in the form here.
