The 2013 MAD Video Music Awards will be the 10th award ceremony, hosted by Themis Georgantas and Mary Sinatsaki. They will take place on 25 June 2013. The awards will broadcast from the Tae Kwon Do Stadium in Athens, honoring the best music videos and artists of the past year. The theme song, "We Are Young", is performed by the Australian-Greek singer Vassy. The nominations were announced on 23 May 2013 by the presenter, Themis Georgantas. Vegas received five nominations, while Elena Paparizou, Sakis Rouvas, Michalis Hatzigiannis, Melisses and Demy received four. The song "All the Time" received three nominations, the most for any song.


As every year there were thirty three categories with additionally, the top 50 category which was introduced for first time where the fans could vote their five favorite out of the fifty.

Due to the celebration of the 10 years, the logo was selected through The Missing Logo, a contest where the fans could create their own logos. The winning logo was revealed on 1 May 2013. Also there was another contest with the fifty best performances from the past awards and the people could vote for their favorites.


As every year, a kick-off party was held to mark the start of the Awards. The party was held on 23 May 2013 at the Balux Privé in Athens, the same day the voting opened. Eleni Foureira, Ivi Adamou, Vegas, Kostas Martakis were some of the artists that attended for the party. A 10 hours live concert was held on 14 June to celebrate the 10 years of the awards. Artists including Ivi Adamou, Melisses, Demy, Shaya and Stavento performed in the concert.

A few hours before the ceremony a MAD PreShow was held with Melisses, Melina Zisi, Snik, OGE, The Fade and Stelios Legakis performing cover versions of the best performances through the ten years of the awards. The songs were picked by the fans in April.
