The Independent Music Awards (IMAs) is an international program that honors top-ranked independent (indie) artists and releases in more than 80 Album, Song, EP, Producer, Music Video and Design categories.

The IMAs were created in 1999 by Music Resource Group (MRG). The program receives submissions from previous major-label artists as well as self-released and indie label talent from more than 70 countries on 6 continents.

Judging process[edit]

Submissions are evaluated on the basis of artistic merit – originality, melody and composition. Panels of influential music veterans and music fans determine the winners and nominees.

Judges that have also won Independent Music Awards[edit]

Vox Populi[edit]

The Independent Music Awards Vox Populi ("People’s Voice") poll was added during the 6th IMA program to encourage fans to make a difference in an independent artist's career. Each year, tens of thousands of music fans from around the globe champion their favorite IMA nominees. The results of the Vox Pop often differ from the industry determined winners.

Categories[edit]

IMA honors are awarded for excellence in a range of genres for Song, Album, and EP, but also for music video (long form and short form), producer, and design (packaging, album art, concert photo, publicity photo, poster, music website, and merchandising).
