The JPF Awards were started in 1999 as a simple way to recognize the best music submitted by members. JPF Founder Brian Austin Whitney felt the music made by the "other 98%" of the music world often ignored by the mainstream televised music awards shows deserved its own recognition.

Preparations are under way for this year's Music Awards. Please watch the website and JPF email newsletter "Just Plain Notes" for updates and details. You can sign up for that newsletter via the button on the top left of this page.
