Golden Indie Music Award
The core value of “Golden Indie Music Award” is creation, and it aims to encourage Taiwan musicians to develop diverse and original music. The three main characteristics are Taiwan first, original first and different types of music regardless of language. Since the establishment in 2010, it cultivated various types of music creators in Taiwan. It is now an important international music brand that represents the freedom, diversity and originality power of Taiwanese musicians.

There are many breakthroughs and innovations in the award items of Golden Indie Award; except from single award and accepting digitally published music works for the competition, there are awards for differently music types, including rock, folk, electronic and hip-hop. Starting from the second year, awards for jazz and blues are added. In the fifth year, the best music style award was added and the blues are cancelled, making the award covers more diverse music genres. In respond to the blooming trend of popular music, there are award for “Best Live Performance Award” and “Best Musician Award”. In order to encourage overseas Chinese creation, “Asian Music Creation Award” is set up.

In 2018, the 9th Golden Indie Music Award launched a three-year transformation plan to build an international Asian music brand. For the first time, the judges were convened by the chairperson, so that the judges have more consensus to represent the viewpoint of the year. And international music professionals are invited to make the award more international and credible. In view of the diverse styles of music creation in Taiwan, and the fusion of diverse and cross-border music work in recent years, the award types were adjusted in 2019 (the 10th award), including the addition of “Rhythm and Blues”, “Non-mainstream” and “Cross-Border or World Music” to reflect the contemporary creation, and encourage and affirm more diverse creations. In 2020 (the 11th award), it is the third year of the transformation, the “Overseas Music Creation Award” is changed into “Asians Music Creation Award” and is limited to individuals or groups from Asian countries or regions. However, the music language is not limited to “Chinese” in the hope to enhance the international appeal of the award and increase the popularity of this award in the Asian music market.
