The Platinum Music Awards are an evolution of the New Mexico Music Commission’s Platinum Achievement Awards – given to musicians, music supporters, and music organizations or businesses that have demonstrated the highest level of achievement and have contributed significantly to the musical culture of New Mexico.

Nominations for the awards come from New Mexico-based music organizations and the general public through February 15, 2017. Nominations will be reviewed by a jury of music industry experts who will make recommendations of worthy recipients to the New Mexico Music Commission, with announcements of the awardees coming in March.
