There are two parts to The Independent Music Awards:
- The general voting process determined by our industry and artist judging panel
- The Vox Populi “voice of the people” process where fans and visitors determine the winners by rating the nominees at The Vox Populi Jukebox
A winner is selected through each of these processes. One artist is eligible to win both awards.
NOTE: Voting for the 12th Annual IMA Vox Pop has ended. After the 13th IMA nominees are announced, the voting platform will reopen.
