The first annual Hollywood Independent Music Awards (HIMA) will be presented Thursday, August 17th at the historic Avalon Hollywood in California. The deadline to submit music for nomination consideration is June 1st (11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time)

The HIMA is an extension of the Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA), which is an annual event celebrating the songs and scores in all visual media including film, TV, video games, commercials, trailers, music videos, documentaries, and other new visual media. For over a decade, the HMMA has included independent music categories in its awards program. Many independent artists attribute the HMMA as a significant catalyst for their music careers. With exponential growth of the HMMA, and increased engagement from indie artists around the globe, the need for a stand-alone platform to specifically recognize independent music was undeniable. 

Founder and executive producer of both the HMMA and HIMA, Brent Harvey, says “The HIMA will have the same level of production, stature, and fun as the HMMA. We’re even using the same venue and production team. It’s going to be a blast. We’ll have quite a few surprises throughout the show!”
