Performance & Song Critique Week By Acoustic Music Awards

Through December 11th, 2012 only, acoustic music artists receive a critique of their music and performance at no additional cost with The Critique Impact™. The Critique Impact™ is a one page music report that covers the music artist's strengths, recommendations, ratings and more.

Judging is based on excellence in music performance, songwriting/composition and originality. Artists may perform original material not yet released and written by other songwriters or composers. All entries submitted during this week will receive judging sheets containing comments and ratings by e-mail. Winners are selected by a panel of established artists and industry professionals.

Winners and runner-ups will be featured on IAMA's CD compilation and artists are featured and promoted on IAMA website every month. The website provides a review, ratings, CD information, touring information and more. You do not have to be a contest winner to be selected for a website feature.

There are prizes in 8 different categories: Folk/Americana/Roots, AAA/Alternative, Instrumental, Open, Country/Bluegrass, Best Male Artist, Best Female Artist, Best Group/Duo.

IAMA is open to, and focuses on developing new markets for acoustic artists, labels and CD releases. Winners and finalists of the Awards will be featured on the IAMA website and e-newsletters, read by music press, talent buyers, promoters and other industry insiders. All songs submitted must be originals.

The 8th Annual IAMA is sponsored by: New Music Weekly, Loggins Promotion, Airplay Access, Acoustica, The A&R Promo™ , SongU.com, Sirius XM Radio, Acoustic Café Radio Show, Kari Estrin Management & Consulting, and Sonicbids. For more information, visit: www.inacoustic.com
