The Radio Disney Music Awards is an annual awards show which is operated and governed by Radio Disney, an American radio network. Beginning in 2014, the ceremony began to be televised on Disney Channel.
The awards honor the year's achievements in music, mainly in the teen pop genre, and are awarded based on popular vote from the network's listeners via online voting. The trophy awarded to a winner is known as the "Golden Mickey", a gold-colored statuette with a silhouette figure of Mickey Mouse donning headphones. Before 2014, the ceremony was not televised beyond commercial interstitial segments for Disney Channel to promote their sister radio network. As of the seventh annual ceremony on April 26, 2014, the ceremony began to be televised in full a day after on tape delay, as the network attempts to compete with Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards in airing awards programming.
