In 2021 IMPF launched a Friends and Supporters category for companies wishing to work with independent music publishers.

The Friends and Supporters of IMPF category is aimed at commercial companies, entities or individuals who wish to have an open and transparent relationship with the independent music publishing community worldwide.

The IMPF Friend and Supporters Engagement policy can be found here.
