InterContinental Music Awards is the most cultural and inclusive music awards in Los Angeles and over the past decade recognized music talents from different countries (From East Asia to Mediterranean Rim, Africa, Europe, North and South America) and had rewarded them with exquisite prizes, from producing high-quality music for them and taking them on the big stages in front of thousands of audiences, to educating and mentoring artists on how to take their careers to the next level!
The power and effect of communication in today’s world is significant. Therefore ICMA is aiming higher by giving opportunities to those who are outside of the U.S., who have less access to the business side of music world, by establishing DIY Music School to offers high quality mentorships and education on how independent musicians should promote their music and grow their career.
ICMA winners and nominees receive scholarships to DIY Music School alongside other career enhancing prizes!
