2016 Blues Blast Music Awards Submission Form

 Recordings released from May 1, 2015 to April 30th, 2016 are eligible

INSTRUCTIONS: Fill it out and include one copy in each box of CD's that you submit.  Please enclose a separate copy of this form for each release submitted for consideration.  You only need ONE COPY of the submission for to submit for each album. (You DO NOT NEED 30 copies of this form!) I

FEES FOR 2016 - For 2016, there is a $10 fee per album to have your music sent to the 30 nominators. We hate to do this but it is outrageously expensive to send boxes of CDs to our nominators. Your check of money order must accompany your submissions. This $10 charge is for each recording submitted, not for each copy of the recording! So if a label sends in 30 copies for three of their artists releases, it would be $30! This charge gets your release directly into the hands of the Blues Blast Music Award Nominators. Simply send in 30 individual copies of your release and the $10 fee and we will forward them to the nominators. Please make checks payable to Blues Blast Magazine. Questions? Send to info@bluesblastmagazine.com or call 309 267-4425 IMPORTANT - Your Submission and fees MUST be received by April 15th, 2016 to be included in the submissions sent to the 2016 nominators.
