The GRAMMY Awards are Music’s Biggest Night, but it takes the whole year to get there. And the journey to the annual GRAMMY Awards begins with the Recording Academy’s Online Entry Process (OEP).

For those looking to submit their music and works for GRAMMY consideration at the upcoming 2023 GRAMMYs, officially known as the 65th GRAMMY Awards., recordings must be submitted during the OEP to be eligible; the OEP this year opens Monday, July 18, at 9 a.m. PT/noon ET and closes on Wednesday, August 31, at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET.

Plus, it’s important to note, there is only one round in which to make entries, and we encourage everyone to make entries as early as possible so that the Recording Academy’s Awards team can assist with any questions in a timely manner. Typically, we receive over 20,000 entries each year.

While submitting entries during the annual OEP is straightforward, everyone can use a primer. Here’s how the OEP works:

  • Recording Academy members in good standing and registered media companies submit recordings for GRAMMY consideration through the OEP.

  • The eligibility period for the 65th GRAMMY Awards is Friday, Oct. 1, 2021 – Friday, Sept. 30, 2022. All eligible awards entries must be released within this timeframe.

  • There is one round in which to make entries. This year, that window runs from Monday, July 18, at 9 a.m. PT/noon ET to Wednesday, August 31, at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET, which means now's the time to submit products for consideration ahead of Music's Biggest Night before the window closes at the end of August.

Submissions for GRAMMY consideration through OEP can only be made by registered Media Companies and Academy Members (Voting and Professional). Registered Companies are not permitted to vote in the GRAMMY Awards Process. Companies will receive OEP instructions by email pending registration approval.

Media Company Registration will be open during the following dates this year:

Monday, July 11, at 9 a.m. PT/noon ET — Wednesday, August 24, at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET
