The much-coveted Mnet Music Awards (MAMA) 2020 hailed as Asia’s biggest music award show is scheduled for Sunday, December 6, at 6 pm KST and the voting lines for all the nominations will close on December 5 at 11.59 pm (KST).

The breakdown of the voting process is as follows. For the Artist of the Year and other Artist category awards, the winner will be decided based on 30% official votes, 30% judge panel, 20% digital song sales plus 20% physical album sales. For ‘Song of the Year’ and Song Genre Category Awards, the title will go on the basis of 20% official votes, 40% judge panel, 30% digital song sales, 10% physical album sales. Major awards like ‘Album of the Year’ will be solely decided on numbers of 40% judge panel and 60% physical album sales. This year, MAMA has tweaked the voting rule of ‘Worldwide Fans Choice Top 10’, which will now be decided based on 60% official votes, 20% social media votes, 20% global music video views along with Worldwide Icon of the Year whose criteria is the same as Fans’ choice Top 10. For the ‘Best Music Video Award’, the criteria remains 70% judge panel votes plus 30% global music video views.

For the voters, it has been mandatory to vote for the Artist of the Year and Song of the Year award without which their vote will not be counted for any category. Music that has been released between October 24, 2019, and October 28, 2020, are eligible for nominations as stated by Mnet.
