NOMINATIONS

New Artist/Rookie Award (Digital)

6thgaon-rookie-award

6thgaon-awards-and-criteria-rookie

Rookie’s debut song will be the basis for this category. Digital sales/count/data of the debut song from the release date until 30 days after will be counted. For BLACKPINK’s case, since they released double debut tracks, it is unclear if they’ll combine the two songs’ digital count or they’ll just consider the best selling debut track which is ‘Whistle’.

Song/Singer of the Year (August) Award

6thgaon-monthy-song-singer-of-the-year-aug-whistle

6thgaon-monthy-song-singer-of-the-year-nov-pwf

6thgaon-awards-and-criteria-soty

Unlike other award shows, Gaon Chart’s ‘Song/Singer of the Year’ awards are categorized monthly. The award is literally called ‘Singer of the Year’ but it’s based on the artist’s song’s digital performance released on a particular month so it can either be named ‘Singer or Song of the Year’ award. Also, different from the previous year’s criteria, the 6th Gaon Chart Music Awards will implement the rule of counting the digital sales/data of the song from the release date until 30 days after. This new ruling will help songs released at the end of the month be equal footing with songs released earlier.

Example: Both Song A and Song B were released in January, however, Song A was released January 1 while Song B in January 28. In previous year’s criteria, only 3 days worth of Song B’s digital performance will be counted for the January award category, however, in the new rule, digital performance of Song A from Jan 1~31 will be counted while Jan 28~Feb 27 for Song B under the January Song/Singer of the Year category.
