HEMI Music Awards (HMA) 2021 is thrilled to reveal the nominees of the first edition! The 27 artists and bands from 9 countries of Central & Southeastern Europe will be participating in the initial phase of HMA 2021 and will earn activities that will help them evaluate their capacity to access new territories.
The package for each one includes accreditations to attend European showcase festivals and conferences, business assessment made by Export Offices, training sessions, and media coverage.
From a total of 285 exceptional European artists from a wide musical range, the international jury had the difficult task to select only 27 of them (3 artists per country) that met the criteria to the fullest extend.
However, only the 9 of them (1 per country) will pass to the second phase of HMA, earning personalized support, advanced training and networking until the third and last phase of HMA 2021 where 3 winners will earn the prize package that covers costs for content creation, promo campaigns, participation to selected music conferences, and all expenses for touring to international Festivals and showcase events, a total prize value of € 6,000 per winner!
HEMI Music Awards is a talent program for artists who are ready to develop an international career and who aim to reach new markets and audiences.
HMA is organized by the Hub for the Exchange of Music Innovation (HEMI), a European initiative aiming to support artists and music business professionals from Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, and Slovenia.
