This year’s ceremony will have a new, non-gendered Artist of the Year category—a combination of the former Best Female/Male Video awards—and an award for Best Fight Against the System, which recognizes videos that, according to a statement from MTV, “inspire viewers to stand up and fight injustice.” Fans are encouraged to vote online for eight different categories.

During last year’s VMAs, Rihanna received the Video Vanguard Award (with an introduction from Drake) and performed four career-spanning medleys.
