Very shortly, A2IM will be announcing this year’s final nominees for the Libera Awards as determined by an industry-wide vote of music experts, taste-makers and VIPs. Only A2IM members will vote for this year’s final Libera Award winners. 

Each A2IM member company is permitted up to 5 voters unless your company has a staff of less than 5 employees in which case you are permitted that number of voters (3 staff means 3 votes.)  We’re inviting you now to select who your (up to) 5 voters will be and to send them to us by end of day Friday, April 1st.

Libera Award voters must be full-time employees or owners of the A2IM member company they’ll be representing.

About A2IM:
A2IM is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit trade organization headquartered in New York City that exists to support and strengthen the independent recorded music sector. Membership currently includes a broad coalition of more than 700 Independently-owned American music labels. A2IM represents these independently owned small and medium-sized enterprises’ (SMEs) interests in the marketplace, in the media, on Capitol Hill, and as part of the global music community. In doing so, it supports a key segment of America’s creative class that represents America’s diverse musical cultural heritage. Billboard Magazine identified the Independent music label sector as 37.32 percent of the music industry’s U.S. recorded music sales market in 2016 based on copyright ownership, making Independent labels collectively the largest music industry sector.
