The Independent Music Awards is a unique music discovery and vetting platform that helps exceptional independent artists get the opportunities they need & deserve.
Curated by blue ribbon Artist and Industry judging panels & discerning music Fans, the influential IMA program elevates the most innovative artists & releases. And connects them to extraordinary fans who seek art that’s crafted with skill, passion & integrity.
That’s why each year, established Artists & rising stars, Producers, Indie Labels & Visual Artists from around the globe enter their new projects in The IMAs.
saw the IMA's mentioned on a couple of different musician friend's posts, and so I thought I would enter my record, Wonderland. It made sense on many levels, now that the Grammy's have done away with so many categories, especially for independent artists.The panel of judges really impressed me, and I also thought it was cool that the IMA's had the vox pop. It's been a great experience. What can I say, It felt great to be recognized after all the hard work….
One of the best independent platforms out there to submit your music to. It’s really incredible exposure and recognition..... Having one of our songs nominated was a selling point for us, not every alternative rock band can say that.
I like to enter new songs into The Independent Music Awards to see which get noticed with your judges. Also having a placement is an honor and a great help booking gigs/tours and flesh out the bios . It has helped me earn some credentials that have been helpful in building my career.
The IMAs open the doors which were closed for you before..., it’s a great honour to be IMA Winner and to have this life-time title .....And of course a bigger interest from promoters, managers etc.... As result - signings, touring and new really useful connections.
A great platform for independent artists to get connected to a bigger network and be recognized for their work. To be among other artist's whose work is really strong is so encouraging and motivating. Also the people from IMA who I've been in contact with have been so responsive and positive. All round a great experience. Naomi Jean Eclectic EP Winner 14th IMAs

"I highly recommended this especially when the radio stations keep playing Miley and Robin Thick for the thousand time."
"Fantastic Compilation! This is the best sampler I've ever downloaded anywhere!"
"I have not heard of any of the artists featured, but many of the songs are quite good. I will be looking into menu of the artists!"
"I never would've found any of this music without this album. Its is an excellent way to sample other genre that may not normally be your taste. And since the songs are selected as the best within their genre, even styles of music that I don't normally listen to, I can appreciate."
"Wow! Do I love this massive collection. The downside is finding too many new artists to buy in the future. Well, I guess that's not so bad after all."
