Ceremonies of the 20th Golden Melody Awards were held at the Taipei Arena in Taipei, Taiwan on June 27, 2009.[1]

Registration process

Registration for entry into the 20th Golden Melody Awards was opened December 1–31, 2008. In order to enhance the fairness of decisions, the Government Information Office promised to increase the number of judges, based on recommendations from industry experts. Several changes were also announced to the list of categories that will receive awards:[2]

  • The award for Best Music Video Director will become the award for Best Music Video to recognize advancements made by the recording industry.
  • In the artistic and traditional music categories, there will be separate awards for Best Folk Drama Album, Best Ethnic Music Album, and Best Traditional Music Album in order to clarify the different target segments.
  • The definition of "album" in the popular music categories, which initially read "six or more songs with a total length of 30 minutes (without the accompaniment versions)", will be changed to "a new arrangement of performance works".

Registration is open to works released between January 1 and December 31, 2008 (Minguo calendar year 97). Winners in an individual category will receive NT$100,000, while winners for published works will receive NT$150,000. If the award is shared by two or more persons, winners will decide how to allocate the reward money.[3]


Nominees for awards were announced on May 15, 2009.[4]
