Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) unveiled on Wednesday the list of nominees for this year’s awarding ceremony, scheduled to take place on December 11 at 6 PM (KST).

MAMA is a major South Korean music awards ceremony presented annually by entertainment company CJ E&M.

According to Soompi, the award-giving body has made several changes to its criteria. 



“Unlike in previous years, fan votes will not be one of the criteria for determining the Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year awards. However, the Worldwide Icon of the Year and Worldwide Fans’ Choice Top 10 awards will be determined entirely through fan votes, with no other criteria,” Soompi reported.

Online voting starts on November 4 at 6 PM (KST) to November 22 at 4:59 PM (KST). So what are you waiting for? Cast your votes now!
