(CelebrityAccess) — Indie trade association A2IM announced that the Liberia Awards will mark the 10th anniversary of the indie-focused awards on June 17th, 2021.

A2IM is planning for the awards show to be held virtually, as it was in 2020, but said a live event was possible as well if conditions allow for it to be held safely.

While the Liberia Awards had previously focused on albums, the awards program has been expanded to include records, which are inclusive of singles, EPs, and albums in all categories

The Liberia Awards are open to independent music labels from every genre, size, and geographical location, who are invited to submit music, videos, artists, and campaigns for nomination consideration, with winners selected by ballot by peers.

Other changes for 2020 include the addition of a Humanitarian Award, which will honor programs and work by a person, artist, or company designed to better the world through the independent music community, and the Record of the Year, a new category developed in tandem with A2IM’s new initiative, A2IM Artist which launched earlier this year.

The 2021 Libera Award nominations are now open until Dec 7th at the Libera Awards Voting Platform, sponsored by Merlin.
