SO, WHAT’S DIFFERENT?
We’re not the only Christian music awards on the block, it’s true. But we believe we offer something different to the Christian music landscape.
For starters, we’re powered by the fans of Christian music. And because the fans have a voice, there’s bound to be some campaigning, which furthers our main goal of spreading Christian music—the subject of it, Jesus Christ—to new audiences.
An awards show for the digital age, the WE LOVE CHRISTIAN MUSIC AWARDS is leading the way in making full use of the online tools available, including social media, digital video, online voting and more. It’s powered by the largest online community of Christian music enthusiasts, NewReleaseToday, and so it carries a considerable knowledge and fan base already accustomed to the digital frontier.
Our awards aren’t like awards at other shows, either. We wanted to turn the awards show on its head, so while we do have the expected general categories like Group of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year, we have some categories that just aren’t done like EP of the Year, The BPM Award (Best Electronic/Dance Album of the Year), and The Next Big Thing (Best Emerging Artist), among others.
The nomination criteria is pretty simple, too. The artists and projects nominated must have been active or created within the show’s preceding calendar year. So, this year’s awards features artists and works created in the 2020 calendar year.
Nominees in each category were determined by the editorial staff of NewReleaseToday. As NRT is the largest, industry-leading Christian music site, we trust our staff’s widespread knowledge of the industry and individual projects to arrive at the best five nominees in each category.
Voting for the 9th Annual WE LOVE CHRISTIAN MUSIC AWARDS runs from Monday, Dec. 7, 2019, to Friday, Jan. 29, 2021. Winners are chosen by fan vote. All voting takes place online at WeLoveAwards.com.
Winners of the 9th Annual We Love Christian Music Awards will be announced during a ceremony at Visible Music College in Memphis on Tuesday, February 23, 2021. It will be broadcast live on Facebook and YouTube.
