GRAMMY Participation Certificates

The Recording Academy is pleased to offer customized participation certificates which recognize anyone who was creatively or professionally involved in a GRAMMY-winning or GRAMMY-nominated recording.

Musicians, composers, publishers, studios, and labels may apply for a participation certificate with proof of participation in a GRAMMY-winning or GRAMMY-nominated record. Participants on GRAMMY-winning or GRAMMY-nominated recordings from past years also have the opportunity to order new or replacement certificates for any previous orders.

Certificates are 8.5" x 11" with customized information. Certificates are printed on heavy, ivory stock, embossed with the official Recording Academy shield in gold foil. Certificates are shipped unframed with a protective folder.
