Golden Ear Awards: Nominations


The Golden Ear Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of Seattle jazz artists over the previous year. Please email your nominations by January 17 to nominations@earshot.org. Alternatively, you may fill out the Earshot Jazz Google form here.

In addition to the perennial favorites, this year we are asking for your help with Special Awards. Please nominate those people or groups that you feel have made extraordinary contributions in this difficult year, perhaps through a remarkable pivot in presentation, support to fellow artists, or new initiatives in education or collaboration.

The official ballot will be available in February.
