Here is a list of last year's categories, which should be identical for 2006. Please that categories with an asterisk are lifetime awards, so previous winners are ineligible. I'm trying to track down a complete list of past winners for Up & Coming Musician. 

The ballot submission email address has not been finalized, but if you intend to send in nominations now, please send them to jjaballot2006 at yahoo.com, instead of any of my individual email addresses in the JJA database. Please do not use this email address for any other purpose, all emails other than ballots sent to it will be deleted. Please sign your name at the top of your ballot so we may verify that you are indeed eligible to vote. 


Make up to five nominations for each award. Please note that nominations are due by midnight, March 15, PT.
