Global Indian Music Awards ranked as fourth best awards IP

MUMBAI: Global Indian Music Awards (GIMA) has been listed as the fourth best Awards intellectual property (IP) for India by BW Applause magazine. GIMA, held annually since 2010, finished a position above Guild Awards for Film and Television. The IPs ranked at number four and five are owned by the Event organisation company Wizcraft International Entertainment. The organisation also owns International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) which was ranked as number one by Applause Magazine, based on a survey that involved 75 such brands.

The research, initiated by BW Applause Magazine, was done across the country to identify some of the prestigious IPs across several categories including Arts, Music, Entertainment, Bikes, Films and Automobiles. The ceremony also celebrates music across all genres such as classical, folk, semi-classical, fusion pop and film music.

Instituted in 2010, Global India Music Awards are presented annually by Global India Music Academy, that honour both film and non-film music. Speaking on the occasion, Wizcraft International Founder-Director Andre Timmins said, “It is truly a great honour to receive this accolade. Each year we try our hardest to create the biggest celebration of Indian Cinema. This achievement would not be possible without the support of the entertainment industry, media and our clients who participate willingly. IIFA, GiMA and the Guild Awards celebrate excellence from India on the global stage. We are also grateful to our broadcasters Star Plus, Colors Viacom18 and Sony Entertainment television for their support through the years.”
