Fans are invited to cast a single ballot this year, which they can edit at any time up until the end of voting. The categories have been narrowed down to concentrate on the one thing that unites fans, professionals in the music industry, and musicians: the purpose of the music.

“As we continue to navigate the challenges of stewarding the Grizzlies vision, we’re constantly innovating to do so in a way that’s responsible with our resources,” said The Grizzy Awards Team, which includes Mary Nikkel, Joel Burris, Cindy Blankenship and Trevor Tyson. “Like the artists we celebrate, we’re committed to being agile. That means that we’re keeping logistics simple this year to focus on what matters most: the music and the mission.”

The Grizzly Awards are fueled by fans in more ways than just votes: The Grizzlies, a non-profit organization, are entirely dependent on donations from fans to organize the event and award artists. Donations can be made through PayPal to thegrizzlyawards@gmail.com, or Venmo to @Mary-Nikkel. All donations of $50 or above will get a limited edition Grizzlies poster.

A combination of fan votes and the votes of a specialized industry panel of experts will determine the award winners. Within the next few months, a livestream will announce the results.
