On January 25th, the selection committee members for the “2011 Korean Music Awards” held a press conference to reveal the nominees for their awards ceremony.

The awards ceremony into its 8th year was created with the intent to treat pop musicians as artists, not as entertainers; consequently, this award focused more on their achievements instead of their sales. There are a total of 25 different categories, and nominations were made by a selection committee.
The awards ceremony will be held on February 23rd.
