For the inaugural year of the IIMVAs we considered dozens of videos to arrive at the final slate of nominees. In each of the regular categories and one of the special categories there were two awards given. The first was the video of the year for the category, selected by a panel of judges drawn from the music industry and music press. The category nominees were voted on in a first round of rank choice voting to determine finalists. Then all nominees were again voted on in a fan voting round in where the video with the most votes in each category and overall received a fan favorite award. There were over 10,000 fan votes cast. Finally, the winners of the first round of judges’ voting and the Fan Favorites were combined in a final round of voting by the judges to select the winners for each category and Video of the Year. Check out the winners below and all the nominees here.
