According to Friday Night Progressive’s Facebook Page:

The IPA is a testament of good will and a gesture in recognition of accomplishment above and beyond the realm of excellence.  It is perceived as a magical award. 

The nominees are selected from the prior year’s album release date. 

The judges then decide on a formula for which works and is fair.  This formula helps them to decide the advancement of artists / bands to the next tier selection.

Every artist that is played on FNP is recognized as special or outstanding and contributes to a genre which is well respected. The IPA was designed to spice things up for the progressive community throughout the world.  If you were played on FNP and nominated, that alone should be enough to win.  It is important to bring these artists out to the forefront and the IPA certainly accomplishes that goal. 

Previous FNP shows announcing the IPA winners from previous years are all up on Mixcloud and are all listed in the ABOUT section of the FNP Facebook page.
