The WOMEX Award Ceremony marks the final closing celebration of the annual event, bringing together delegates one last time before venturing back home filled with new experiences, musical discoveries and inspiration to sustain them for their future work and projects.
This year, the Award Ceremony will take place digitally and stream directly into your homes. Join us to honour and celebrate extraordinary artists and professionals from our community.
Hosted by Colin Bass and Aliena Haig, the Ceremony will be filled with a look back at the first ever digital edition of WOMEX, with speeches from this year's laudators Birgit Ellinghaus and renowned journalist Soro Solo, a tribute to the Top 20 Labels of 2020, presentations about the WOMEX 20 Award Recipients and a welcome to the WOMEX 2021 Host City from the mayor of Porto himself.
