Nominee Guidelines


Spin Awards Nominee Guidelines

IMPORTANT 2023 SPIN AWARDS INFORMATION We are delighted to inform you that you are on the 2023 Spin Awards Nominee List. The Spin Awards honors those who spin the Gospel message. We are now entering into our 7th year of celebrating SPINNERS! To our knowledge, we are the first and only national awards ceremony organization that strictly and exclusively honors Christian Gospel Radio. CONGRATULATIONS!

The Spin Awards and all its brands including Spin Awards Radio, The Spin Awards Affiliate Program and The Spin Awards Magazine are privately owned with our own set of guidelines and standards that we adhere to in an effort to maintain fairness to all by His Grace. We will continue to enhance and adjust the guidelines year by year in an effort to be MORE and MORE for every nominee. We pray you hear our hearts of love in all we do to honor you should there come a time guideline enforcement is required.

Please note that Awards such as The Everett Drake Distinction In Radio Award and the Spin Awards Christian Gospel Radio Hall of Fame Award as well as other special awards are awarded by The Spin Awards and are not part of the nomination process. Also, the legendary Mr. Drake will be on hand to present the Everett Drake Distinction In Radio Award himself.

VOTING GUIDELINESUsing special software or building of bots to send your name in multiple times through non-existent email or fake email addresses to vote will be grounds for us to eliminate and/or void your entry/entries from The Spin Awards ballot, ultimately this means being disqualified from being a Spin Awards winner should you prevail in your category. Voting will no longer start June 29, 2023 and end July 29, 2023 instead voting will start June 30, 2023 and end on July 30, 2023 due to numerous reported issues with nominee list page and acceptance form. We have made this change in the interest of fairness to all.

ATTENDANCE GUIDELINES: Please make plans to attend the Spin Awards. There are no ticket purchases required for nominees who confirm their nomination and attendance by September 01, 2023, no mandatory purchases, and/or hotel reservations to complete, however, you MUST be in attendance to receive your award and recognition as the prevailer in your category/categories. If you DO NOT ATTEND, you forfeit your right to prevail in your category.  Exceptions to this rule are limited and can only be determined by the Spin Awards Staff at their discretion in writing by email or snail mail. We in love, spend thousands of dollars and expend countless hours of our time to make this event memorable for you, our very special nominee. This one (The Spin Awards) is for you and only you, so please plan to be there. 

Barring those exceptions, you cannot just simply send a representative in your place. You MUST contact your awesome Spin Team in advance to determine if a waiver is possible .

EVERY NOMINEE HONORED. Every nominee will be honored during the Spin Awards even if YOU DO NOT prevail in your category. We beseech you to circle the date in your heart and plan to attend. We want to honor you, in person, with an eventful, fun-filled weekend while bringing Glory to His Name. So we hope to see you there.

FINALIST. You will know you are a Spin Awards Finalist if your name/show/station is announced and appears on the screen during The Spin Awards ceremony. All nominees are honored during the weekend and are listed in the Official Spin Awards Souvenir Book.
