The nominee list was curated by the Korean Music Awards Selection Committee comprised of industry professionals and executives, music critics, radio show producers, academics and writers. The committee’s full list of nominees was released February 9th 2022, with a series of videos featuring the nominees for each genre.


The committee states that it nominates and awards artists based on musical achievement over the past year, and avoids making decisions purely based on sales.
