The IMAs is now gearing up for its 14th annual ceremony. Submissions have been extended now through November 7th, and you're invited to participate!
The Independent Music Awards program is an international event that connects artists to new marketing and revenue opportunities. What makes it different to other awards is the judging and the rewards.
Submissions are evaluated by peers with a focus on artistry and originality, not press clippings and record sales. You can submit your work in more than 80 Album, Song, Design and Music Video categories that cover all genres and specialty categories. The panel of judges includes a range of music icons, festival programmers, music press, Film & TV music supervisors and buyers from big performance venues throughout North America, Europe and Australia -- so you're getting lots of visibility by influential people just by submitting. This year's panelists include: Amanda Palmer, Sharon Jones, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Lila Downs, The Wood Brothers, Jane Monheit, Melissa Auf der Maur and many others.
Winners and nominees enjoy additional support in marketing campaigns; radio, print, online and broadcasting promotions; and new performance and revenue opportunities. These range from a 12-week radio promotion campaign to special retailer promotions and international distribution opportunities. You can find out more about these on the IMA submission page here: http://www.independentmusicawards.com/affiliate/radioairplay
It's really a no-brainer. So stop whatever you're doing now and join past winning and nominated IMA artists which include: Band of Skulls, Vienna Teng, Ben Kweller, Darrell Scott, Lacuna Coil, Joan As Police Woman, Flying Lotus, Girl In A Coma, Pokey LaFarge & The South City Three, Elizabeth Mitchell, Jamie Liddell, Pharis & Jason Romero, and many more by submitting your work.
Nominees are announced in March, and winners are named in the Spring.
