Presented each year by APRA AMCOS and the Australian Music Centre, the Awards recognise achievement in the composition, performance, education and presentation of Australian art music. Art music covers activity across contemporary classical music, contemporary jazz and improvised music, experimental music and sound art.
The 2017 Art Music Awards will be held on Tuesday 22 August in Sydney.
Note that to be eligible for Work of the Year categories, the work must have been performed publicly (i.e. by concert performance or broadcast) within the year prior to the Award (i.e. 2016). If the work received its FIRST performance in 2016, it may have been completed at any time previously. If the work did not receive its first performance in 2016 it must have been completed in the three years prior (i.e. 2013, 2014 or 2015).
Nominations close Monday 27 March at 5pm AEST.
