The 2015 MAMA (Mnet Asian Music Awards), Asia’s biggest awards ceremony, will be adding three new categories. Awards will be presented this year for Best Producer, Best Entertainer, and Best Performance (Sound/Direction/Stage Production). All material released from the end of 2014 to the beginning of October 2015 will be eligible.
The MAMA hopes to present awards to a diverse group of people ranging from producers to stage managers; prizes are awarded based on fan and industry votes. Online voting for the MAMA started on November 5, and so far over 10 million people have participated, with fans voting from more than 200 countries.
The 2015 MAMA is produced by CJ E&M and is currently on its seventh year of production. It will take place on December 2 in Hong Kong at the Asia World-Expo.
