“The Independent Music Awards is an influential & effective international program that helps top-ranked indie artists & releases overcome mainstream obstacles and reach millions of Fans, Programmers, Talent Buyers, Film, TV & Gaming Music Supervisors, Press and other industry movers & shakers. It is not a contest or battle of the bands. IMA artists receive yearlong print, online & broadcast promotions plus distribution & performance opportunities. The IMAs represent the diversity of today’s vibrant indie scene and supports artists with previous major label releases as well as artists that have only self-released or appeared on indie labels.”
Congratulations to Hank Friedmann, the director and animator extraordinaire, whose brilliant work deserves the utmost recognition and appreciation.
