Art Music Awards: record number of nominations lodged
The 2011 Art Music Awards, presented by the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) and the Australian Music Centre, have attracted a record number of about 200 entries from AMC and APRA members. This is an amazing achievement, with many new nominations for the two new 'Experimental' and 'Jazz' categories and the individual 'Works of the Year' categories. We are presently convening judging panels to begin the assessment of nominations. Announcements will be made in the lead-up to the awards event, to be held at the Sydney Theatre on Tuesday 3 May.
