The FMX Awards were established in 2006 by Berlinièros Sports Agency to honor the world's best Freestyle Motocross riders. Annually it awards FMX competitors who have been outstanding during the previous year.

There is a two-part voting process to find the winners. Firstly, a selection panel of FMX experts and leading FMX editors, writers, promoters and broadcasters from several countries vote to create a shortlist of a maximum five nominations in each category.

In the second voting process every user of the fmxawards.com-Website has the chance to vote for his/her favorites.
