Just as the second lineup of musical acts have been announced for the National Indigenous Music Awards 2015 – including Frank Yamma, B2M, and The Painted Ladies – comes the news that NIMA nominations are now also open.

The awards recognize acts from across the country, with categories of Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, New Talent of the Year and more.

Nominations close June 20.

Watch for the launch of a NIMA + triple j Unearthed competition in late May, too.
