Nominations for the 2019 CIMA Awards Gala 

In its first four years, CIMA’s Celebration and Awards Gala has recognized Canadian heavyweights with awards for their immense contributions to our indie music sector. In 2019, we’re ready to honour the next set of passionate pros, pulling from all branches and levels of the biz. What began as our 40th anniversary celebration is now an annual party to give props to those who innovatively create, support and strengthen Canada’s independent music industry. This is your chance to nominate yourselves, your mentors, peers, employees and partners for the Entrepreneur Award, Brian Chater Industry Award, Unsung Hero Award, and Builder Award!
Deadline for submissions: January 31st, 2019

Please submit up to three names for consideration, along with around 100-300 words per nominee, explaining why you believe each individual has notably contributed to Canada's independent music community. This part is extremely important and valuable, as it gives our jurors the perspective they need on selecting this year’s award recipients.
For the Brian Chater Industry Award and Entrepreneur Award, all nominees must be the owners, managers and/or staff of CIMA member companies in good standing.
Please note: nominator information will be kept private.
