Artist membership – for self-releasing artists, managers and small labels representing a single release. Dues are: $86.25 incl. GST yearly
If you’re an artist or manager representing an artist who wishes to join IMNZ and also works with a label or distributor who is already an IMNZ member – please get in touch about our discount rate on the artist member tier.
