Organized by the Independent Phonographic Union, since 2009 the MIN Awards have recognized the creation, diversity and artistic quality of independent productions published in Spain.

The MIN Awards introduce emerging artists to new audiences, bringing the music and production process to the public and consolidating the recognition of creative activity.
