All artists or bands nominated must have released their first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination, according to the press release.

Following the announcement about nominations, an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists and historians and members of the music industry will receive nominee ballots.

According to the press release, "an artist's musical impact and influence on other artists, length and depth of career and body of work as well as innovation and superiority in style and technique are taken into consideration."
