      This page is an alphabetical list of all Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) Award Categories, as I install each year's complete list of all Nominees and Winners. A few category names link to separate pages that have been created here to list all Nominees/Winners in that category over a number of years.

      (Category) "of the Year" is implied at the end of every listed category (except "Hall of Fame"), whether it actually appeared in the source documents or not. For example, Folk Group or Artist of the Year
