40 Principales’ team noted that the nominees have been selected among those artists that were played on the network at least once, between October 15, 2009 and September 30, 2010. The list of nominees was drawn up based on three criteria: the rotation in the 40 Principales lists, the results of market surveys conducted by the network and the album sales of each artist.
