Hollywood Music In Media Award recipients are determined by a vote of the HMMA Producers, Selections Committee and Advisory Board, populated by qualified industry professionals. As such, selection as a HMMA award nominee or recipient represents the strongest possible peer and industry professional recognition. No person may become a voting member of the Selections Committee or Advisory Board unless he or she can demonstrate a threshold level of experience and professional credits in the industry. HMMA voting is internal and confidential and winners are only revealed during the awards show.
