The DJ Awards has 11 distinctive music style categories, with 8 nominees in each of them. There are also 11 ‘Special Awards' which are decided by a panel of dance industry experts. Honouring the fact that the scene is ever-changing and always evolving, the DJ Awards has added some new categories this year; Urban and Eclectic House.

These new categories have been added to embrace the global music scene and the fact that more and more acts are pushing the boundaries, taking clubbers on a musical journey - creating their own new music genres.

The DJ Awards also has new Special Awards this year which are: Live Performance, Remixer, Producer and Cutting Edge. The Cutting Edge award celebrates who is at the forefront of the dance scene this year in terms of music/producing/technology.
