For the first time, ballots have been sent via email to reporters who are selected as voters, instead of the organisation of an online press conference in the two major cities as in previous years.

The list of nominations in the nine categories was announced on February 5, and the voting will be done online from March 20. The winners will be announced on March 25.

The annual Devotion Music Awards began in 2004 to promote Vietnamese music and honour artists making significant contributions to the industry.
