Golden Ear Awards Ballot

2020 Golden Ear Awards Ballot

Each year, the Golden Ear Awards recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements of the previous year in Seattle jazz. With the pandemic, the continued fight for racial justice, and threats to American democracy, 2020 has been a difficult and very different year. We acknowledge the heavy toll that shuttered venues and restrictions on live performances have taken on our community. Many artists have struggled to perform and create under these challenging circumstances, and we thank all the artists for everything they’ve contributed to the Seattle jazz community this past year. Furthermore, we want to thank everyone who sent in nominations this year.

Now, we look forward to hearing from you. Vote online at earshot.org below, by email to vote@earshot.org, or mail your selections to Earshot Jazz, 3417 Fremont Ave N, #221, Seattle, WA 98103. Ballots are due March 1.

The ballot listed here on this page is for reference, to vote by Google form click on the Vote Now button below.
