The Lexington Music Awards, an initiative started last year to celebrate the local music industry, is seeking nominations for this year’s awards, which will be announced in a ceremony taking place at the Lyric Theater on Jan. 31, 2016 at the Lyric Theatre.

Nomination categories range from musicians in varying genres to live music venues, sound technicians, albums and more. Nominations will be kept open until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 28. (The deadline to nominate was extended from its initial Nov. 20 deadline.) Once the polls close, event organizers will tally the nominations and announce three official nominees for each category. Those who make it to the final nominee pool will become the “committee” that ultimately votes and decides winners for each category.
