As part of the HMAs partnership with our Official Education Partner BIMM, we’re giving five students a chance to gain some first-hand experience of the music industry via the Heavy Music Awards’ own events and processes.

The students work across four courses at BIMM’s London campus – Music Journalism, Music Business, Music Event Management and Production.

Today, we’re meeting Music Journalism student Domonkos Gargyan, who will be writing some content, interviewing some of our finalists and attending the HMA events in a journalistic capacity.


On BIMM…
I’m really happy to be studying at BIMM. They are keen on getting us placements etc in order to make sure our degrees are actually gonna be worth something upon graduation. Although it’s great to have some formal education, success in the music industry seems to depend more on practical aspects like experience and connections, and people at BIMM know this very well.

On the HMAs…
Despite its relatively recent start, HMA pretty much became a key event for the rock/metal community, and their list of nominees was spot on last year. I also love the public vote system.

On your career goals…
I’m hoping to become a reputable publicist or merchandiser. If all else fails, I’ll play the scissors in Noel Gallagher’s band.

On your stereo…
Skunk Anansie – Search and Destroy

Last show you went to…
Turbowolf at Scala.
