The New England Music Awards are presented every year to the musicians who call New England their home and whose dedication, spirit, and achievements over the last year have without a doubt established themselves as a contributing force to the most robust and diverse music scene in the country. The NEMA nominating committee consists of journalists from music publications, radio personalities, talent buyers, and record label execs collectively representing all six New England states.
The goal of NEMA is to celebrate and recognize some of the areas best musical achievements. Every year NEMA will nominate over 100 artists and/or bands spanning a number of categories and genres of popular music in New England.
In 2013, The New England Music Award teamed up with Pavoh to present - The New England RADAR Award - to recognize rising musical talent under the age of 21. The "RADAR Class" is chosen by a group of independent New England music industry executives.
