Thirteen of the awards were voted for by music fans via www.btdma.com and seven by a panel drawn from various players in the digital music sector.

The event, organised by U.K. telecommunications giant BT, claims to be the country's only awards ceremony dedicated to digital music entertainment. According to BT group managing director (consumer) Gavin Patterson, "The BT Digital Music Awards continues to recognise the artists and those in the industry, both established and up and coming, who are delivering the best in cutting-edge digital music entertainment."
