Billboard Introduces New Industry-Voted Award for Annual Power 100 List

For the first time ever, Billboard is introducing a peer-voted award to its annual Power 100 ranking of the music industry’s most influential executives. This new Power Players’ Choice Award will honor the executive whose peers believe has the most impact across the music business over the past year, from recording and publishing to touring.

Voting will be open to all Billboard Pro members, both existing and new, with one vote per member.

The first round of voting will begin Jan. 6, with an open call for nominees.

The second round of voting will begin Jan. 11, in order to narrow down the top 20 nominees into the final five top executives.

The third round of voting will begin Jan. 13, to select the winner from that list.

Voting will close Jan. 17.

If you are not yet a member of Billboard Pro, you can join here.
