Tibetan Music Awards was first started in 2003 to honour Tibetan musicians, singers, and others from the recording industry for their musical and artistic achievements, and to encourage excellence in the industry.
The event is held every two years on the basis of albums produced by musicians and singers. The winners will be directly selected by the public through voting on this website. The voting took place from over 15 to 17 August. There were more than 2000 votes.
Musicians, singers, and others who get the maximum number of votes will be the winner for each category. The results of winners will not be known until the Awards presentation ceremony night on 15 October in McLeod Ganj. The names of the winners will be revealed through the opening of sealed envelopes by the announcers.
