The date for the awards ceremony has yet to be revealed.

First established in 1969, the AWIT Awards were discontinued in 1972 before being revived over a decade later in 1988, with the 1988 ceremony now acknowledged as the official first AWIT Awards in the lineage. The 2020 and 2021 editions of the awards were not held in-person due to the pandemic, making this the first live award show since.

Winners of previous AWIT Awards include The Itchyworms, Moira dela Torre, Leanne & Nara, SB19, IV of Spades, KZ Tandingan and more.
