The 10th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA) is open to all independent artists and labels. But, unlike other music competitions, IAMA focuses on developing new markets for acoustic artists and labels, with or without CD releases. Prizes are awarded in eight different categories. The Grand Prize is worth over $11,000, and includes radio promotion to over 250 radio stations in US and Canada. Judging is based on performance, songwriting composition and originality, with the winners selected by a panel of established artists and industry professionals.
