Ahead of our Music Journalism & PR awards at the end of November, we are looking to review the categories. It's not practical to present more awards on the night, but if needed we could announce a few in the magazine only. However, what we really want to hear from you is whether the existing categories are fit for purpose, or need to adapt.
We aim to produce shorter longlists than we have previously, and open them up for input before voting goes live.
Winners are chosen by vote, with weight given to important/influential/relevant voters.
Your comments here can be anonymous if you chose.
