Anděl Awards

The Angel Award (Anděl Award, Czech: cena Anděl) is a Czech music award ceremony organized by the Czech Academy of Popular Music. It is a successor of the Annual Czechoslovak Music Award established in 1991 in Czechoslovakia. Between 1992 and 1996, it was known as Gramy. The award categories are the same as the American Grammy Awards, with the award including a ceramic gramophone statuette. Since 1997, it bears the current name, with the award including a statuette of an angel playing a horn, designed by sculptor Jaroslav Róna.[1] The name of the award ceremony has been changed several times.
