The Denniz Pop Awards is a collection of music prizes awarded annually to the new talents, unsung heroes, and big successes of the industry who are making an outstanding contribution to Sweden’s international pop music heritage— and helping continue the legacy Denniz Pop once started.
Founded in 2013, The Denniz Pop Awards was initiated by former Cheiron members, coworkers, friends, and family with the goal of helping new songwriters, producers, and artists continue the legacy Denniz Pop once started.
The awards are handed out in Stockholm every year, uplifting new talent and recognizing the year’s greatest successes. Finalists are selected by a jury packed with a roundtable of industry giants who, together, have helped shape Sweden’s phenomenal track record as one of the greatest exporters of pop music the world has ever seen.
The impact of a win is especially life-changing for the rookie songwriters, producers, and artists who not only receive a cash prize, but a springboard to the rest of the world—backed by endorsements from some of the best in the industry. It’s no coincidence that some of the most celebrated names we see on the world’s stage today were once recipients of a Denniz Pop Award.
