The British Blues Awards were inaugurated in 2010. The prize was awarded in various categories, such as 'Male vocals', 'Female vocals', 'Guitarist', 'Bass player' and 'Keyboard player', 'Blues band', 'Young artist', 'Blues album', 'Blues festival' and 'Lifetime achievement'.

The Awards were suspended in 2017, due to technical problems surrounding the validity of the online public voting system, which over time had become susceptible to abuse.[1]
