For 38 years, the GMA Foundation has honored well-deserving individuals and groups through an annual induction ceremony into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame.  Artists are eligible for inclusion in the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame after 25 years of participation in music and ministry.

Inductees are selected by 200 electors from across the industry in four categories: CCM, Gospel, Southern Gospel and Non-Performing. Nominees can be submitted year-round for consideration by the public at www.gospelmusichalloffame.org.
