Nominations Launch 2013

The wait is finally over MOBO Music fans!

We are thrilled to announce this year’s nominations for the 18th annual MOBO Awards.

One of the most frequently-asked questions is: “Who chooses the MOBO Nominees?”

Adhering to a strict list of rules and policies, we started the process of compiling data of artists’ singles and albums from the period of September 1st 2012 to August 23rd 2013 from the Official Charts Company in order to ensure the eligibility of the potential nominees.

This year we have continued with the process of having a split share of the vote: 50% generated by the MOBO Music Panel and 50% generated by the general public.

The MOBO Music Panel are a team of professionals and influencers within the music and entertainment industry and have years of expertise.

We have grown the numbers of the panel to 40+ people and this year we invited a variety of influencers, representing every sector of the music industry from: record labels, publishers, managers, DJ’s, Artist Managers and Pop culture enthusiasts. In August we launched a competition to invite five lucky Superfans to participate amongst the MOBO Music Panel, which was something new for the MOBO Awards.

The event was a huge success and it was a great way to unite key influencers with MOBO music nominations.

2013 marks our 18th anniversary, so you can’t afford to miss out on this year’s MOBO Awards which will feature some of the hottest acts from Tinie Tempah, Iggy Azalea to Rudimental and more to be announced shortly. Tickets range from £25 to £49 and you can purchase your ticket here to be there:
