NATS Artist Awards (NATSAA)

The NATS Artist Awards (NATSAA) competition is designed to assist singers prepared to launch a professional career and, to that end, substantial monetary and performance prizes are offered.

The NATSAA semifinal and final rounds are held in New York City, in proximity to a wide audience of artist managers and industry professionals. The competition takes place every other year. Preliminary competitions are held regionally and national semifinals/finals take place in conjunction with the NATS National Workshop in New York.

The 2020 NATSAA semifinal and final rounds will take place January 10-12, 2020, in New York at the Roosevelt Hotel Grand Ballroom. The final round is open to the public for $10 general admission seating, available at the door. The  Roosevelt Hotel is located at 45 East 45th Street & Madison Avenue.

"Throughout its history, the purpose of this [NATSAA] competition has been to select, through a series of elimination rounds on the district, regional, and national levels, singers whose artistry indicates that they are ready for a professional career and to encourage them toward that goal with a cash prize and the opportunity for performance engagements." - Edward Baird, President of NATS, 1985-1987
