|Anugerah Industri Muzik|
|Awarded for||Outstanding achievements in the Malaysian music industry.|
|Presented by||Recording Industry Association of Malaysia (RIM)|
|First awarded||15 December 1993|
Anugerah Industri Muzik (literally: "Music Industry Award"), commonly known by the acronym AIM, is the award ceremony to honour the Malaysian music industry. The award is organised by Recording Industry Association of Malaysia (RIM) and was first held on 15 December 1993. It is Malaysia's equivalent of the Grammy awards.The award is not only focused on Malay-language music produced in Malaysia, but also English, Chinese and Indian language music as well, in which separate awards were introduced for the latter two language music subcategories in 1999 and 2013 respectively. (The former ceremony, known as the AIM Chinese Music Awards, had been held in 1999 and 2001 before encountering a twelve-year hiatus due to insufficient funds. )
The broadcaster of the award has been changed several times, varying between RTM, Media Prima and Astro. The earlier two awards are broadcast on television after the event, and the following event would be broadcast live through television.
Radio Televisyen Malaysia is a Malaysian public broadcaster. It has 36 radio and 4 television stations in Malaysia, based in Kuala Lumpur. RTM is the first broadcaster in Malaysia.
Media Prima Berhad listed on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia, Media Prima Berhad is Malaysia’s leading fully integrated media company with a complete repertoire of media-related businesses in Television, Print, Radio, Out-of-Home Advertising, as well as Content and Digital Media.
Since its introduction, the award has been held every year, with the exception of 1994 and 2015, due to the changes in the month that the event would be held.
Some categories may have been replaced and/or removed. In the first award in 1993, there are only ten categories. After the first award, Best New Artist (Solo) was split into male and female categories, until 1999. There is also a Best New Artist (Group) category until 1999. Genre-specific best albums are introduced in 1995 and was abolished in 2010 due to declining number of albums released. The focus on Best Vocal Performance was changed from album to single in 2009. Best Indonesian Album category was introduced in 1997, and was replaced by Best Malay Song Performed by a Foreign Artist in 2008 until 2013/2014. RIM has added five new categories that recognizes the achievement of songs and music videos based on digital sales on all digital platforms. This new awards recognise significant contributions by record labels in the local music industry ecosystem and provide opportunities to the public to be the jury through the new category, Best Malaysian Singer.
The current awards presented in Anugerah Industri Muzik are:
Technical achievements awards:
Best songs according to genres
A nasheed is a work of vocal music that is either sung acappella or accompanied by percussion instruments such as the daf. In general, Islamic anasheed do not contain lamellaphone instruments, string instruments, or wind and brass instruments, although digital remastering – either to mimic percussion instruments or create overtones – is permitted. This is because many Muslim scholars state that Islam prohibits the use of musical instruments except for some basic percussion.
As of 2016, unlike similar music awards in other countries, none has won Best Album and Best Song in the same year.
