Classical Music Awards 2009: call for nominations
© Bridget Elliot
It is time to have your say about the new music year of 2008. Who composed the most impressive or thought-provoking pieces, played the most brilliant performances, organised the best events? Who should be awarded for tireless work for the new music community? Who opened your ears with new sounds and made you listen afresh? Who made a difference?
The Classical Music Awards, presented yearly by APRA and the Australian Music Centre, recognise the best compositions and performances, outstanding contributions by individuals, organisations and educators all over Australia. There are eleven national awards and an award for each state and territory.
Nominations can be made through the quick and easy instant nomination process by 27 March (we'll take care of the support materials for you) or through the full nomination procedure with complete support materials by 1 May. Forms for both categories are available on the AMC Awards website as well as below. The awards are judged by leading composers, performers, musicologists, educators and critics.
