We are NOW officially on the road to the 2014 Artists In Music Awards. I can’t believe we are already in our 3rd year!
BREAKTHROUGH AT THE HARD ROCK!
As you may or may not be aware, we will be hosting a series of events called, “The Breakthrough Series” at Hard Rock Cafe or called, “Breakthrough at the Hard Rock” (pending Hard Rock Cafe approval). These events are an 11-show series held at Hard Rock Cafe on Hollywood Blvd in the heart of Los Angeles from April through October 2013. Two artists will be selected to perform at each of the 11 shows. There won’t be any winners, losers, and no elimination. Just come for great food, great music, great friends, and get photographed on the Red Carpet.
At the end of the series, we will invite 4 artists to come back and perform at the Awards Ceremony.

GRAND PRIZE ANNOUNCEMENT
For the news you’ve all been waiting for. We recently partnered with 2 amazing new companies. First, we reached an agreement and have partnered with Arts Seen & Heard PR, which provides public relations for artists, musicians and writers and has placed clients in local and national publications. They have graciously donated a PR prize pack worth $5,000 that will be awarded to one of the top three recipients for either Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, or Performer of the Year.
We've also joined forces with MusicSUBMIT. MusicSUBMIT has donated a prize pack valued at $500. MusicSUBMIT is a music promotions and internet publicity website for musicians. Music SUBMIT submits your music to genre-specific radio stations, online music magazines, online music directories, blogs, podcasts, indie record labels, and other electronic music media. In addition, 101Distribution and Independent Music Promotions have returned and will also provide valuable prize packages worth $500 each. That's over $6,500 in valuable prizes!
From June 1st through November 1, 2013, fans will decide through the voting poles who are their favorite artists. Between November 1st through November 31, combined with the voting results, the judges will make the final decision who will be the Top 5 Final Nominees in each of the 27 categories, including the Top 5 in the Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, and the Performer of the Year category. On December 1st, the voting poles will reopen to the public for the winner take all in each of the categories. On January 20, 2014, the poles will permanently close and we will begin the trophy engraving process. The trophies will be handed in person to each artist that secures their genre category at the Awards Ceremony in February 2014 (date and location TBA).
Over the last 2 years, we’ve had artists ask us to add various genres into our award categories, but unfortunately, we can’t recognize every category that’s out there. However, we want your opinion. Below is the full list of current and newly added genres. We would like to know what you think. What category(s) is missing from this list? Is your genre not represented?
