Anugerah Industri Muzik (literally: "Music Industry Award"), commonly known by the acronym AIM, is an award ceremony which celebrates the Malaysian music industry. The award is organized by the Recording Industry Association of Malaysia (RIM) and was first held on 15 December 1993. It is Malaysia's equivalent of the Grammy awards. The award is not only focused on Malay-language music produced in Malaysia, but also English, Chinese, and Indian-language music. Separate awards were introduced for the latter two language music subcategories in 1999 and 2013 respectively. One of these, known as the AIM Chinese Music Awards, was held in 1999 and 2001 before encountering a twelve-year hiatus due to insufficient funds.) The broadcaster of the award has been changed several times, varying between RTM, Media Prima, and Astro. Since its introduction, the award has been held every year, with the exception of 1994 and 2015, due to changes in the month of the ceremony. The 2016-2018 edition of AIM was not held due to financial constraints.
