Unlike the International Bluegrass Music Awards, chosen by a three-tiered ballot process among the IBMA’s professional membership and presented during a gala Awards Show, the Special Awards are selected by a Special Awards Committee chosen by the IBMA Board Chair and presented during a Special Awards Luncheon.
Any member of the organization can submit a nomination for the following categories:
Bluegrass Print Media Person of the Year
Bluegrass Event of the Year
Best Graphic Design
Best Liner Notes
What… no bluegrass web site of the year?
