WHAT ARE THE TIMAs?

The Toronto Independent Music Awards are an indie awards ceremony, showcase series and seminar founded in 2004. The concept evolved out of a frustration for the lack of true support for independent musicians. The TIMAs serve as a platform to award and acknowledge up-and-coming independent artists regionally and locally. Our ultimate aim is to create an infrastructure to give independent artists a hand in ways that are actually useful by providing industry connected prizes and community support!


WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY FOR THE 2008 TIMAs?

- We gave away over $30,000 in INDUSTRY CONNECTED PRIZES LAST YEAR, and we are going to try to beat it THIS YEAR by $10,000!! We have SEVERAL MAIN PRIZES, and UNIQUE PRIZES that are geared towards genre categories. Stuff you can actually use!!!
