Girls, girls, girls!
The impressive finalists for the Australian Women in Music Awards have been announced, including names Ngaiire, Mojo Juju, Christine Anu, Claire Edwardes and Alice Skye, among many more, to be presented at a star-studded ceremony, concert and party in Brisbane on Wednesday 9 October.
This year’s AWMAs include three new award categories for Excellence in Classical Music, Music Journalism and 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 for far too long in an industry built on creativity and tenacity!
Fifteen AWMAs will be up for grabs following the public nomination process and judging by a prestigious group of industry professionals and practitioners. A special award will once again be presented to this year’s inductee for the AWMA Honour Roll 2019.
The AWMA Ceremony, Concert and Party will include a dazzling mix of music genres and some of Australia’s biggest music names and most inspiring artists, with performances featuring Katie Noonan, Clare Bowditch, Cheryl Barker, and more.
