Winners announced! 


The biennial APRA Professional Development Awards exist to provide support to emerging songwriters and composers. Nine awards will be given out, with each recipient receiving a game-changing $15,000 cash prize to support their development. It is expected that the funds will help recipients attend workshops, music education courses, composer seminars, co-writing sessions and other relevant activities - locally or internationally.

Awards were presented across seven categories:

1. Popular Contemporary (three awards are given in this category including Pop, Rock, Blues, Folk, Hip Hop and R&B); 

2. Country; 

3. Jazz; 

4. Art Music; 

5. Dance/Electronic; 

6. Film and Television; 

7. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.

Once again in 2019, the Smugglers of Light initiative formed part of the PDAs. Now in its third year, this Award will provide a promising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music or media practitioner a grant of $12,000.
