Hawaii Music Awards

The Hawaii Music Awards are an annual people's-choice awards program established in 1996. The awards are organized and managed by the Music Foundation of Hawaii, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the diversity of music in Hawaii and to honoring and acknowledging the talents and achievements of the state's musicians.[1]

The awards program was founded by Johnny Kai, and includes various music genres such as Rock, Jazz, Classical, Ska, Punk, Latin, Blues, Reggae, Jawaiian, Polynesian, Exotica, Country Western, and also established Hawaiian genres like Traditional Hawaiian and Contemporary Hawaiian.[2]

The award winners are selected by the general public. The Hawaii Music Awards implemented the first online interactive voting system developed for the internet.[2]
