The Singing News Fan Awards is an annual award ceremony held on the Saturday night program of the National Quartet Convention and honors the achievements of professional Southern Gospel artists, songwriters and DJ's.
Award Selection 
The winners of the awards are selected by subscribers of the Singing News Magazine, a monthly magazine devoted to this particular genre of music. Generally the selection is made via a nomination ballot, a top ten ballot and then a top five ballot with the group/person with the most votes winning.
The awards were started by the Singing News Magazine and were first awarded in 1970. Within a few years, these awards were handed out at the National Quartet Convention and were recognized as the pre-eminent awards in the Southern Gospel genre.
