Zamu Music Awards


Zamu Music Awards

The Zamu Music Awards is an annual awards show in Flanders (Belgium), where the most outstanding Flemish and international musicians of the past year are honored.

The Zamu Awards were founded "ZaMu" ("Zangers en Muzikanten"; the Flemish association of singers and musicians). "ZaMu" was discontinued in 2006, but the organization of the Zamu Awards was taken over by "Muziekcentrum Vlaanderen" (Flanders Music Center).

For most award categories, a jury of music journalists selects four nominees. The winners are voted by members of the Flemish music industry, such as musicians, managers and record labels. Exceptions are the awards for best song and best music DVD, where the votes of the public select the winner.

A special award is the Lifetime Achievement Award, given each year to an artist to honor his or her complete creative career.
