The NME Awards is the annual music awards show founded by the music magazine NME (New Musical Express).
The awards began as the NME Poll Winners Concert and awards ceremonies in the 1953, shortly after the founding of the magazine. These continued through the 1960s, where concerts were filmed and broadcast on ITV. The Beatles and The Rolling Stones were most commonly featured.
The Awards Ceremony is the culmination of a series of NME Awards tour which showcases a range of new music talent across the UK.
The public determine the nominees in the Shockwaves NME Awards. Register your vote for the longlist at NME.com/awardsvote.
