The Australian Women in Music Awards are back

Thursday, 13 Jun 2019

Following a successful inaugural year in 2018, the Australian Women in Music Awards will return on 8 and 9 October, shining a light once more on the incredible accomplishments of women across the Australian music industry. This year’s AWMAs are better and stronger, with three new award categories – in the areas of classical music, music journalism and image making.

Last year’s event saw industry leaders and emerging Australian icons descend on the Brisbane Powerhouse and come away triumphant, with artists including Amy SharkJen Cloher and NGAIIRE all taking home awards.

Nominations are now open

This year’s categories include three new awards for Excellence in Classical Music, Music Journalist Award and Excellence in Image Making. Producers, Engineers, Film Makers, Photographers, Songwriters, Industry Leaders, Artist Managers and more are set to be acknowledged and celebrated in their own right at this year’s ceremony - recognition that has gone untapped in an industry built on creativity and strength. 

Submit nominations here. Winners will be decided by a curated panel of expert jurors.
