    fyi, it’s free to submit for consideration and nominations are determined by indie music experts from across the industry. while nina’s article mentions some of the bigger artists/labels that have won, do know that nominees and winners have also included artists/projects/labels that are much less well known. submit your project, your label…it’s fun, it’s judged by people you put your music in front of for consideration all year long and you can’t be nominated or win unless you’re entered for consideration.
