The SMA's

The Swiss Music Awards, the biggest music prizes in Switzerland, serve to promote the national music scene and to present its cultural diversity. As a hub for music-makers, professionals, and personalities from the worlds of politics, society and the media, in just a few years the Swiss Music Awards have evolved into the music prizes with the broadest appeal and greatest impact in the country.

Official Promoter

The SMAs' organizer is the agency Claim Event AG. The founder and managing director of Claim Event is Oliver Rosa, who as executive producer has been responsible for the organization, marketing, and strategic development of the event since its inception in 2008.


Awards will be given by the association Press Play. As the official giver of the awards, the association Press Play is responsible for drawing up the rules and (in conjunction with GfK Entertainment AG) for counting the votes for the awards ceremony. Nomination and selection of Swiss Music Award prizewinners are officially regulated by Press Play.


The current regulations will be posted here shortly.


This sophisticated event will not only delight the audience, it will also have viewers at home on the edge of their seats. The show will be broadcast live on SRF 2 and One TV. There will also be a live stream on RSI.ch.

Aftershow Party

When the show ends, the party begins! Once again, the Swiss Music Awards will organise an After Show Party in 2018. Stars, starlets, winners, and nominees will be there, dancing the night away.
