The UKBlues Awards have been created by UKBlues to give the blues community in the UK the opportunity to recognise and applaud those involved with the blues in the UK in all spheres and at all levels.
The UKBlues Federation is ideally suited to do this given that it is an Affiliate of the Blues Foundation and an Active Member of the European Blues Union - both of which organisations support and endorse these Awards - as well as the organiser of the annual UKBlues Challenge.
For 2020 the FORM UKBlues Awards were to have been presented at a celebration of the blues event at the iconic Dingwalls venue in Camden Lock, London on Sunday May 17th 2020. However, due the current Covid19 lockdown, the venue cancelled the event but we are delighted to advise that we have put in place a virtual Awards presentation which will take place on Sunday 17th May 2020 on the UKBlues Federation's YouTube channel.

Nominations for the Awards were invited from a panel of more than 800 people from across the blues spectrum in the UK during a two week period in January and voting was open for two weeks from 3rd February 2020.
