Whether a musician or an album has won an award, or has been nominated for an award can be useful information when marketing a release. DDEX supports both with their MEAD and PIE standards:

Awards for parties

To communicate that a party – be it a composer, a recording artist, a sound engineer, an individual, a band or an ensemble – has received an award (or has been nominated for an award), a metadata provider should use the Award composite in the PartyList/Party composite in PIE. 

This composite supports the following pieces of information (all elements are optional):

  • The name and/or identifier of the body handing out the award;
  • The name of the award itself;
  • The date of the award (this may well be just a year);
  • A flag whether the award was won (or not);
  • The name of the party that has been given the award (or has been nominated), which may be different from the party that the PIE message is about (e.g. when an award is won by a band); and
  • A comment.

In addition, PIE’s Award composite allows to signal who it is that claims that the award was given using the MetadataSourceReference tag.

Below is an example to communicate that Norah Jones was nominated in 2003 by the American Music Awards to be named “Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist”.

Awards for Creations

Awards for creations such as musical works, sound recordings or music videos, and releases can be communicated in MEAD using the Award composite. This composite has the same structure as described above and can be linked, in MEAD, from the 

  • WorkInformationList/WorkInformation;
  • ResourceInformationList/ResourceInformation; and 
  • ReleaseInformationList/ReleaseInformation composites.

Below are MEAD 1.0 and 1.1 examples that communicates that the album “We're All Alone In This Together”, released by British rapper Dave, won MOBO’s 2021 Best Album award.
