The winners of "THE JAPAN GOLD DISC AWARD 2013" have been revealed.

The ‘Japan Golden Disc Award’ is headed by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ), and the RIAJ initiated this annual event in 1987 to recognize outstanding artists and works that have contributed to the recording industry.

The winners are chosen based on the actual sales number of music software (deducting the number of the returned goods from the number of shipped goods), as well as the number of downloads through paid online distribution, Chaku-Uta, and so on. The winners for this year were chosen from data compiled from November 1st, 2011 to October 31st, 2012.

The “Artist of The Year” awards are considered to be the ‘grand prize’ for "THE JAPAN GOLD DISC AWARD."

Check out the winners of this year below!
