The 2022 MAMA Awards ceremony, organized by CJ E&M and broadcast through its music channel Mnet, was broadcast live on November 29 and 30, 2022. The ceremony was held at the Kyocera Dome Osaka, Japan.[1] The theme for the ceremony is titled "K-POP World Citizenship" with sub-themes per night, "The world we build together" for day 1, and "We are K-POP" for day 2. The ceremony is the first to carry the new rebranded name, the first to take place overseas during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the 24th in the show's history.

This year's ceremony saw the addition of the MAMA Platinum award which will be given to artists who've won all 4 daesangs (Grand Prizes). BTS was the first, and so far only, artist to receive the award, by virtue of winning all of the four daesangs in the previous 3 editions.[2]


On August 23, 2022, CJ E&M announced that the "Mnet Asian Music Awards" would be rebranded as simply the "MAMA Awards" going forward.[3] On October 26, Mnet announced the first line up of artists for the ceremony. On November 9, Mnet announced the second line up of artists for the ceremony.[4] On November 16, Mnet announced the hosts of the ceremony, Jeon Somi will be hosting day 1 while Park Bo-gum will host day 2. They also announced that BTS member, J-hope, will perform and collaboration stages.
