IMA Sessions


The Indigenous Music Awards are producing IMA Sessions for the second year, in partnership with Kejic Productions and Exclaim!.

Strong creative video content is an essential marketing tool for artists, helping them to reach new audiences and connect with music industry professionals such as promoters, agents, festival bookers, and media. IMA Sessions will provide a high-quality live video to help these artists reach new markets.

On May 15th 2019, three Indigenous artists/bands will perform an original song at Arcade Studios for a live off the floor video shoot.

The videos will premiere on and will be distributed on social media via Exclaim! and the Indigenous Music Awards.

To be eligible, applicants must meet the following criteria: 
• Be a Nominee of the 2019 Indigenous Music Awards presented by Casinos of Winnipeg

NOTE: Each submission will be adjudicated by a group of music industry professionals. The jury will review the information that you submit along with your website and social media profiles. Submissions will be rejected if incomplete.

Participants will be responsible for their own accommodations and travel.
