Recording Academy

The recording industry’s most prestigious award, the GRAMMY, is presented annually by The Recording Academy. A GRAMMY is awarded by The Recording Academy’s voting membership to honor excellence in the recording arts and sciences. It is truly a peer honor, awarded by and to artists and technical professionals for artistic or technical achievement, not sales or chart positions. The annual GRAMMY Awards presentation brings together thousands of creative and technical professionals in the recording industry from all over the world.

Other Awards

In addition to the GRAMMY Awards, The Recording Academy presents other notable honors. These awards recognize contributions and activities of significance to the recording field that fall outside the framework of the GRAMMY Awards categories, and include:

  • Lifetime Achievement Award
  • Trustees Award
  • Technical GRAMMY Award
  • Music Educator Award
  • GRAMMY Legend Award
  • GRAMMY Hall Of Fame
  • Latin GRAMMY Awards

The Latin GRAMMY Awards were launched in 2000 with a very successful first annual telecast aired on CBS. It was the first primarily Spanish-language prime-time program carried on network television. Like the GRAMMY Awards, the Latin GRAMMYs recognize artist and technical excellence in the recording arts and sciences by peer vote. It has already come to represent the height of achievement in Latin recording.
