Applications are now open for The Lighthouse Award

Thursday, 08 Mar 2018

Established in memory of Linda Gebar, The Lighthouse Award grants $5,000 to a female identifying-Victorian music manager who exhibits passion, creativity and integrity. 

Linda Gebar died tragically in October 2008 soon after the birth of her second child. She was one of the few female managers in the 90s, and worked with The Killjoys, Frente and The Blackeyed Susans. She also booked the Punters Club, worked at PBS FM, had a record label and worked at APRA AMCOS.

Linda was a truly passionate believer in local music and the community that surrounded it, and was a mentor and colleague to many. This memorial award exists to continue Linda’s work, and support a forward-thinking manager who is dedicated to Australian music.

Previous recipients of The Lighthouse Award include Jen Cloher, Bonnie Dalton, Bernadette Ryan and Charlotte Abroms.

The Lighthouse Award represents APRA AMCOS’ commitment to addressing the gender imbalance within the music industry and encouraging women to pursue a career in music.
