Following the Conference, the Music Industries Association, in partnership with NAMM, is delighted, once again, to announce the MIA Music Awards 2015. The Awards has become a major celebration for the whole industry, honouring the bestselling and most reliable and innovative products and retail initiatives in the UK and celebrating the top individuals and organisations within the music making industry. In what has been another challenging year for the industry, the MIA Music Awards will provide a much needed opportunity to acknowledge the professionals and organisations who continue to drive forward creativity and innovation.
As last year, instrument manufacturers and retailers will be able to nominate themselves for entry into the Awards. The winners of the majority of the categories will be decided by online public or retailer vote through this website or our media partners. The remaining categories will be judged by esteemed judging panels. Final Shortlists for the public and retailer voted categories will be announced on 9 October and the winners for all categories will be announced at the ceremony.
The Awards ceremony will take place at The Hilton London Metropole, London on Thursday 12 November 2015.
