Sparking Collaborations Among Indie Musicians


Would you like to advertise your album in Billboard Magazine's special Grammy contender issue in 2020? This issue is scheduled for publication on 9/19/2020. We must have your order and all materials no later than 8/15/2020.

All we need is your insertion order and payment (see form at right), and your album artwork, as well as the category you are submitting in. More info can be put in larger ads. See the examples below. We will do the artwork for your approval and take care of the rest.

Please note that Billboard puts larger ads closer to the front of the magazine. Small ads are placed in the back. By being part of our larger ad, even if you have only a single space ad, it will be closer to the front than if you placed it yourself.

The bottom line is that there is strength in numbers - that’s the purpose of the Indie Collaborative!

Billboard is a tabloid publication, which means that the pages are 10 W x 13 H in.
The IC uses the top of each page for common branding.
Most of the page is divided into nine single ad spaces. These nine areas can be configured with any possible combination of 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, or 9 space ads.
So of course there can be nine 1-space ads, a single 9-space ad, or a variety of combinations of 1-6 space ads.
Please see the mechanical information below each sized ads below to know what you need to provide to us.
Please note that larger ads can be designed by you or by the IC at your request. The requirements and protocols are shown for each size ad.
