LET'S CELEBRATE MUSIC JOURNALISM!
In collaboration with Reeperbahn Festival, we are delighted to invite you to the International Music Journalism Award 2019 - an unpretentious award show that celebrates music journalism in all its facets. This year's winners have just been announced (scroll down for a complete list) and will receive the IMJA for their noteworthy journalistic work during the award ceremony. 

In times of over-sharing, the efforts put into high-quality journalism are often taken for granted and music journalism rarely gets the amount of attention it truly deserves. 
To counteract this, the IMJA puts music journalism in the center of attention by honouring noteworthy individual work and first-rate ongoing journalistic engagement that focuses on popular music and its business climate.

FRIDAY, 20.09.| 4:30 - 5:30 PM
SCHMIDTCHEN (KLUBHAUS ST. PAULI)

Spielbudenplatz 21-22, 20359 Hamburg

RSVP 
If you want to attend the ceremony, we encourage you to get in touch with us as soon as possible, as capacity is limited. Send an e-mail to Ida Sällinen: saellinen@factory92.eu
