— Shahed Mohseni, Founder & Executive Director
LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Musical artists and their fans all around the world gathered online last Sunday for the 10th Annual InterContinental Music Awards, a Los Angeles-based competition that recognizes musical works worldwide in 145 genres, from 35 countries, across 7 continents. The mission of the InterContinental Music Awards (aka the ICMAs) is to foster peace and unity through the universal language of music, recognizing global talent and helping artists to bolster their careers. A complete list of all 54 Winners in 2022 is available on the official website: https://www.intercontinentalmusicawards.com/icmas-announce-2022-winners/

The ICMAs were presented live on Zoom by ICMA Founder and Executive Director Shahed Mohseni and actress-author-coach Karen Lorre, and each official Winner was invited to make a live acceptance speech. For many, it presented a unique opportunity to gain beneficial recognition and media footage on an international level and in their home countries. The options for entry are categorized by geographical continent or region, and then by musical genre.

The song submissions are privately evaluated by an independent panel of judges including artists, ethnomusicologists, producers, and executives working in the Hollywood music, entertainment, film, and media industries. Using a standard form, songs are scored on originality, melody, harmony, composition, and quality of the production. View the jury panel: https://www.intercontinentalmusicawards.com/judges/

Heerraa, a dynamic young independent artist from Malaysia, was the recipient of the organizations new ICon Award, an award level added this year in honor of the 10th Anniversary celebration. The ICon Award -- akin to Best in Show is chosen by the Jury Panel from amongst the pool of all Continental Winners; Heerraa's song entry Feel Alive won in Best of North America for Pop. She is a Harvard University sophomore, and co-founder/advisor of Ascendance, an international youth movement. The ICon Award winner receives a $1,000 Cash Award, which was sponsored and presented live on air by Beth Ann Hilton of Hilton Entertainment LLC, a Los Angeles-based communications firm.

Mohseni began the live InterContinental concerts over a decade ago to unite fellow international students in Cyprus where he attended Eastern Mediterranean University. He eventually moved to Los Angeles to pursue a Music Business education, while expanding the awards and pivoting to producing online events during the pandemic. He says, Our goal is to evaluate music differently from the standard awards show categories, using a more global and ethnical perspective. Our continental approach offers musicians around the world a chance to be seen and rewarded for their artistic efforts regardless of their location, gender, ethnicity, nationality, color, or race. We accept & celebrate music from all seven continents; it really means a lot to me to welcome artists in regions or countries that restrict music freedom.

ICMA Winners receive career-enhancing prizes, including a scholarship into the DIY Music School, one-on-one coaching, mentoring from members of the judging panel, a Star Spot feature, a chance to perform in future InterContinental Concerts, discounts on software, and an official ICMA award certificate. Prizing varies year-to-year based on sponsorships; brand partnership decks are now available for the 2023 Awards.

Interested musicians, producers, performers, and songwriters can enter the 2023 InterContinental Music Awards, which will begin accepting online submissions for an early bird rate on September 1, 2022, via a link on the organizations official website.
