The mission of the Vancouver Island Music Awards is to (1) CELEBRATE the Vancouver Island music scene, (2) Build AWARENESS of this scene among the general public on the island and across Canada, (3) Provide a NETWORKING opportunity between artists and music industry representatives, (4) Acknowledge & Reward EXCELLENCE in the artistry and work ethic of Vancouver Island and Canadian artists, (5) EMPOWER & ENCOURAGE Island and Canadian Artists to pursue their musical dreams, (6) Set a positive and professional example for YOUTH (and the young at heart!) who are pursuing a career in music.
Contributing to the local community is a mandate of the Vancouver Island Music Awards. In addition to the event’s support and cultivation of local arts & culture, the VIMAs supports The Mustard Seed Food Bank in Victoria. Non-perishable food donations for the MSFB will be taken at the 2014 event. As VIMA is a community event, the community’s support and involvement is crucial and greatly appreciated. Thank-you to sponsors, ticket buyers, media, music industry representatives, and artists for contributing to the sustainability and ongoing evolution of this event.
