Buma Awards

Appreciation, recognition and encouragement for music makers

We are proud that every year Buma Cultuur organizes the Buma Awards, an important ceremony in the Dutch music sector. The Buma Awards are designed to recognize and reward the most successful and creative music creators and publishers of the past year.

During the ceremony, several awards are presented, including the Buma Award National and the Buma Award International. In addition to these popularity prizes, important jury awards are also presented, such as the Lennaert Nijgh Prize for the best lyricist, the Gouden Harp for a person who has meant a lot to Dutch music and the Lifetime Achievement Award for a composer who has performed exceptionally and for a long period of time. We are proud that these awards have become an important recognition of the achievements of music creators and publishers in the Dutch music sector.

The Buma Awards are intended not only to reward the most talented music creators and publishers, but also to encourage them to continue creating new and innovative music. By encouraging creativity and innovation, we hope to continue to develop and strengthen the Dutch music industry.

As BumaStemra, we play an important role in protecting the rights of music creators and publishers. Through our membership and services, music copyrights are protected and music is optimally exploited. The Buma Awards are a way to show our appreciation for the efforts of music creators and publishers and to support them in their creative and business activities.
