Mark your calendar for August 7th, of 2021.
Our 2021 ISSA Awards Show YouTube Premiere is here:
USA Times 11:00am pst/ Noon mtn/ 1:00pm cst / 2:00pm est
Please check your worldwide time zone for accurate times to watch the live Premiere. Don’t worry however if you miss it, it can be found on our YouTube and now on our ISSA TV Channel on Roku.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. We look forward to shining our every growing spotlight on this year’s winners, right from the comfort of your own home. Save your travel expenses this year, sit back, and relax in your pj’s with your friends if you like.
We will also be asking for acceptance speeches from our worldwide winners to put together a presentation for our winning artists again this year, since you can’t come to a actual podium to receive it.
THE 2022 ISSA AWARDS LIVE SHOW IS ON!
Next year, we are set to resume our LIVE show at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center, right in the heart of Atlanta, (in the same venue where the Annual BMI Awards are also held), on Saturday, August 6th, 2022 with a Preparty the evening prior to the show and the After Party immediately after the show at our very close and convenient location right (Wild Wing Cafe Dunwoody) just around the corner from our new venue.
The show will have our 20 plus foot plush red carpet entrance and banners, complete with photographers, four videographers and will be the talk of the town with several local television celebrities on the red carpet conducting interviews with our Finalists.
We will be releasing information from our production crew of over 15 people to help with anything you may need, from hotel reservations, concierge, airline travel for our International attendees, and more.
If you need to book your reservations for next year to get great deals on travel now, DO IT!
There is a lot to do in Atlanta, of course, it being a very large metropolitan city, it houses the largest International Airport in the World and hosts a very eclectic realm of music genres, which is why our awards are based on you and your music, not the genre. You might want to consider staying a few days and taking in the city, and the music scene here. There are also some really amazing tours.
Our first year, we had attendees from over 18 foreign countries, and 8000 Members, and we have grown so much since then. Last year we had twelve thousand members and are vastly approaching the 15,000 mark. This is why we decided to step up our venue and provide you with the best of the very best when it comes a top notch, high end, high quality awards show.
We will be presenting our show here: SANDY SPRINGS PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
OUR ANNUAL AWARDS SHOWS IS BECOMING MOST INSTRUMENTAL, IN MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE OUR A FORCE ON THE INDEPENDENT MUSIC SCENE AS WE CONTINUE TO GROW AT SUCH A RAPID RATE, AND OUR GOAL IS TO HIGHLIGHT YOU, THE ARTIST, EVERY YEAR.
The 2019 and 2020 ISSA Gold Winners that will be judging and some presenting the 2021 Awards are are follows:
