Over 40 artists will be invited but of which the Awards will be be for the best song in various categories and a special award will be to an artist that is nominated for a lifetime achievement. "I'm not saying who the nominated artists are but year 2011 will be to a very special person and that person will truly not know until the night," said Giovanni Di Stefano.
San Marino Television have been offered the first call on the television rights. The station is partly owned by RAI TV of Italy and started broadcasting only in 1992. Mr Di Stefano stated that it was the desire of his record label to also sponsor a festival in San Marino to find new talent to enter in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest which San Marino have previously participated. "I have a lot of faith in Carmen Lasorella and the whole crew at San Marino TV and just because they are a small station does and will not ever exclude them from participating in major events," said Di Stefano.
The gala event next year will see the promotion of major and new talent and Mr Di Stefano confirmed that the ideology of his record label is to allow everyone a chance at recording.
The company stated that anyone can nominate an artist for an award for best song from any country in the world.
