IMRO is open to songwriters, lyricists, composers, arrangers of public domain music, and music publishers who have their music publicly performed. If you’re involved in a band, pursuing a solo music career, composing orchestral scores, or producing original beats, IMRO membership could be suitable for you.

As a member, IMRO will collect and distribute the royalties earned from public performances of your music, including radio/television broadcasts, live performances, and online uses. Through agreements with affiliated sister societies globally, IMRO also ensures the distribution of royalties from overseas public performances of your original music, without applying administration charges. IMRO distributes royalties monthly, positioning itself as one of the leading performing right organisations worldwide.

Additionally, IMRO organises workshops, seminars, and masterclasses conducted by internationally acclaimed songwriters, publishers, and producers for the benefit of its members. Members also receive regular updates on international conferences, song contests, showcase gigs, and other valuable career enhancing information through the member mailing list.
