Songwriters, lyricists, composers, arrangers of public domain music and music publishers who have their music publicly performed are eligible to join IMRO.
If you’re in a band, building a solo music career, composing orchestral scores or producing original beats, read on to find out how IMRO membership might be for you.
IMRO will collect and distribute music royalties earned by you for public performances of your music. Public performances include radio/television broadcasts, live performances and online uses. Through our agreements with affiliated sister societies worldwide, IMRO also distributes music royalties earned by our members from overseas public performances of their original music. IMRO does not apply any administration charges on overseas royalties and we distribute monthly, making us one of leading performing right organisations in the world.
IMRO also hosts a regular series of workshops, seminars, demo dips, and masterclasses delivered by internationally acclaimed songwriters, publishers and producers for the benefit of our membership. Find out more in our Seminars and Workshops section.
Through our member mailing list, we also provide regular updates on international conferences, song contests, showcase gigs and other useful information on both the Irish and international music markets.
