Q&A Does my band need to submit a recording to be eligible? No. Only your release information is necessary. During the submission phase ("Phase One"), please submit name of band, name of recording,
release date and category in which it should be considered. The DMAF compiles a list of eligible recordings each year that is as comprehensive as possible. We include this list with the ballot
as a helpful tool for voters, but recordings not included on the list are still eligible for nomination by voters.
