Who are the women making a difference in the music business?
For the ninth consecutive year, Billboard's special feature Women in Music will identify these individuals – and we once again invite our readers to offer their nominations online using the form below.
The deadline for nominations is Friday, August 2.
Women In Music is an annual report in Billboard's Power Players series, as well as an invitation-only event to honor the top women of the year, as selected by Billboard. It recognizes women executives who drive our business forward with their vision, dedication and hard work.
Women executives in all aspects of the music industry are eligible.
Executives must be nominated as individuals, not as members of a team.
Women who make their living primarily as artists and/or songwriters are not eligible unless they own their recordings or songs and act in a business capacity to market them.
Billboard editors will choose among the nominees by considering the achievement of each nominee during the past 12 months, with an emphasis on how that achievement can be best measured. (Examples: revenue or market share, new business generated, etc.). We also will consider how they have shown leadership in the broader industry.
