2018 Art Music Awards nominations are in!
The 2018 Art Music Awards nominations closed earlier this week. Nominations totalled 235 across all categories, up from 213 nominations last year.
Nominations cover a fertile and active range of activity around the country, and demonstrate that, despite challenges, Australian music is in a healthy state. Of particular note is an increase in nominations in the jazz categories: Excellence in Jazz nominations more than doubled from last year and there was an 80% increase in the Jazz Work of the Year category. The Performance of the Year category nominations also showed a significant increase, up by 25%.
The 2018 Art Music Awards ceremony will be held in Melbourne in August, details to be announced.
