The APRA Song of the Year short list has once again revealed an incredible list of homegrown talent.

The wonderful thing about APRA is its ability to identity a total cross-section of talent. The School of 2018 is about diversity with Jazz, Rock, Pop, Country, Blues and Roots, Rap, Indigenous and Electronica acts listed side by side.

In 2019 the APRA Music Awards also has a new Musical Director in Kate Miller-Heidke curating the evenings live performances.

The 2019 APRA Awards will be held in Melbourne on Tuesday 30 April 2019 and first for new APRA AMCOS Chief Executive Dean Ormston.

“The APRA Music Awards have evolved a great deal since we last held the event in Melbourne in 2013, so I’m thrilled that this year we’ll be presenting our very special night in such a fantastic music city and at the venerable Melbourne Town Hall. It will be a true celebration of our songwriter and publisher members, and of course, the songs,” says Ormston.
