LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, February 3, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Who wouldn’t love to be a music ICON? Today, InterContinental Music Awards (ICMA) Founder and Executive Director, Shahed Mohseni Zonoozi, announced that the 2022 InterContinental Music Awards are celebrating ten years of concerts and competitions by adding the “ICON” Award, with a $1000 Cash Prize to go to the recipient. Essentially, this new, highest award level is akin to “Best in Show” on a global music level, and will be chosen from the pool of Official Winners from every continent. Entries are open now for the world’s most diverse and inclusive music awards; musicians can enter their ICMA submission through 12:00 midnight on April 15, 2022 PST at https://www.submit.intercontinentalmusicawards.com/

The ICMAs are unique in their global scope, inviting performers, songwriters and producers to submit music according to the genre and continent where they believe their music is best suited to compete. For instance, an Iranian woman who dreams of performing K-Pop can submit her music to compete in Korea under the K-Pop category. A rapper from Norway can submit to compete in North American Hip Hop category. The ICMA’s mission is to lower geographical barriers, and to embrace music as a tool for unity. As a bonus, they also offer the new cash prize and meaningful music education opportunities to winners and finalists.

The InterContinental Music Awards is a Los Angeles-based music competition that annually rewards and recognizes musical talent worldwide. Entries are categorized by geographical continent or region, as well as by musical genre, and are evaluated by an independent panel of judges with years of experience working in the Hollywood music, entertainment, film and media industries. Winners receive $1000 cash, career-boosting prizes, including a full scholarship into the DIY Music School, one-on-one coaching and mentoring from members of the judging panel, the opportunity to pitch for sync licensing, a chance to perform in the InterContinental Concert Series, discounts on CD Baby, and more.

Available for interviews and commentary on the ICMA awards are:

– Shahed Mohseni Zonoozi, ICMA Executive Director
