Each year, Music Resource Group assembles a panel of esteemed Artist and Industry judges to determine the Winners & Finalists of the Independent Music Awards. Recognizing that ultimately it’s the voice/choice of the people that matters most to an artist’s career, the IMA Vox Populi poll was added in 2006 to allow music fans to pick their favorites.

This year, over 37,000 voters from around the globe were cast in this year’s “people’s choice” component of the IMAs for all music, video, art & swag categories. Now the votes are in, tabulated and the winners of the IMA Vox Populi popular vote are announced.
