Musimagen (The Association of Musical Composers for Audiovisual Projects) and Fimucité (The Tenerife International Festival for Music for Cinema) are organising the Sixth Spanish Audiovisual Project Music Awards.
These awards are the only of their kind presented in Spain, as voted by audiovisual composers, and, year after year, we strive to offer the biggest audiovisual music awards ceremony on the national scene.
The fact that the awards are given during the FIMUCITÉ festival allows the winners to gain considerable professional recognition on a global scale.

Votes will be cast by Certified Electronic Vote. All Musimagen members will have the option to vote. The names of the recipients in each category will be announced publicly on Monday, May 22nd on the Musimagen website, across all of our official social media and in the press.
