What is MTV VMAJ ?

MTV has changed the way the world experiences music - it's not just about listening to your favorite tunes, but also the thrill of the visual experience. This love of music led to the first MTV Video Music Awards (or VMAs) in 1984, and paved the way for Japan's own MTV Video Music Awards Japan (or VMAJs), which kicked off in 2002. The show honors the very best music videos of the year, and plays host to a star-studded cast of performers and presenters spanning the Japanese and international music and arts scene.

The VMAJs comprises 16 award categories, and the winners are decided by the fans. We're looking forward to your top picks of the year.


All the award nominees have been announced!

Calling all music lovers, these awards are for both you and the artists.

The voting period is now over.
