Nominations for the 2021 Wammie Awards are now live. Residents of the Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area can nominate their favorite local musicians and artists, including themselves, for a coveted Wammie.

With categories spanning 24 music genres, including Go-Go, Acapella, Pop, Gospel/Inspirational, and more, and 6 general interest categories ranging from Best Music Studio to Educator Award, and Advocacy Award to Best Music Venue, the Wammies promises to be more exciting than ever.

Through the struggle and hardship of 2020, the DMV area’s musicians and artists have continued to create incredible music and we are proud and humbled to be able to recognize them for their achievements,” said Jeffery Tribble, Jr., Executive Director of The MusicianShip.
