    How does a person present his song or composition to be considered for a Grammy Nominee, and to whom….?

    Sam - January 25, 2016 reply

    Hi Hryam — Looking at the GRAMMY website, it looks like submissions come from Academy members as well as registered partners (labels, PROs, etc.). Here is the excerpt from their site:

    The Academy accepts entries online from its members and from registered media companies. Entrants are provided information on how to submit their recordings electronically for consideration.

    Hope that helps!
