And connects them to millions of discerning music fans – like you.
That’s why each year some of the most interesting self-released and indie label talent from around the globe enter their new work in The IMAs!
A lot has changed since we first honored the best independent musicians and releases 15 years ago. Except our commitment to help innovative artists get the recognition they need.
And to unite them with extraordinary fans who know that art made with craft, passion and integrity deserves to be supported.
If that’s you, join The IMAs now to see and hear what you’ve been missing.
IMA fans have unique access to an incredible mix of self released & indie label artists from around the world.
IMA Nominees and Winners are determined by a blue ribbon judging panel of indie artists, music icons and industry leaders. But you don’t need to be a celebrated big shot to know what’s fresh and interesting. If it moves you – you’re a fan.
Vox Pop, the fan-determined portion of The IMAs gives you access to new music and videos from established indie artists and rising stars – performing all styles of music.
In addition to building an impressive playlist from independent artists from around the world – IMA Fans help determine the year’s best independent Songs, Albums, Eps, Producers, Music Videos and Designs.
Talented artists and passionate fans are always a winning combination.
So The Independent Music Awards will reward you for helping Artists earn a fan-Nomination and Vox Pop Award.
It’s easy and fun to earn fan points while discovering new artists to love. The most passionate patron will win the very first IMA Super Fan award – plus VIP seating & backstage passes for The Independent Music Awards gala at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City!

"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."
