Subject: RE: BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019
People might be interested in the BBC Folk Awards rules - always instructive to see how decisions are arrived at and who they are made by. One extract from the 2018 Awards [I can't find the 2019 ones online] - "The Voting Panel is made up of approximately 150 people. The Panel is comprised of those persons who have a professional or semi-professional interest in folk music, i.e. journalists, broadcasters, festival and club organisers, venue bookers, record company personnel, folk music academics, etc." The full rules for 2019 are at the BBC Website. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/c7mfYt17wxPXmfdttl7HDS/folk-awards-rules
