Dubbed the "Retail Oscars" by Music Inc. Magazine, the Top 100 Dealer Awards was created to spotlight the industry’s very best music product retailers and share their strategies for success. In addition to choosing the Top 100 Dealers, an independent panel of judges also picks winners in seven “Best of” categories, from which the prestigious “Dealer of the Year” is selected. Whether you run a small mom-and-pop store or a chain of retail outlets, we invite you to enter this year’s awards program.
