Golden Melody Awards

The Golden Melody Awards (simplified Chinese: 金曲奖; traditional Chinese: 金曲獎; pinyin: Jīn Qǔ Jiǎng) is an annual Taiwanese music award, founded in 1990, presented by the Government Information Office (GIO). It is usually presented in May, June or July each year and presented for music in Mandarin, Taiwanese, Hakka, and Taiwan's aboriginal languages. It is the Chinese equivalent to the Grammy Awards where Chinese musicians from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and other parts of the world competed for the awards. It is also one of the three major annual awards presented in Taiwan along with Golden Bell Awards for television production and Golden Horse Film Festival and Awards for movies and films.

There are two main streams of categories: Popular Music Category (流行音樂作品類) and Traditional Music Category (傳統暨藝術音樂作品類) and are presented at separate ceremonies.

It was first broadcast on Azio TV (東風衛視) from 2002 to 2009. From 2010 onwards it was broadcast on Taiwan Television (TTV) (台視).
