Jane Gazzo, Christine Anu and Ngaiire are a few of the finalists named for the Australian Women In Music Awards to be held in Brisbane on 9 October.

For 2019 the Women In Music Awards will have three new categories. Excellence in Classical Music, Music Journalism and Image Making have been added.

“Queensland is pleased to host the AWMAs for the second consecutive year, profiling our state’s commitment to gender equality and providing opportunities for women,” said The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk, Premier of Queensland and Minister for Trade.

“The AWMAs are a fantastic addition to Queensland’s vibrant arts scene. They are another great opportunity to showcase the tremendous creativity and depth of talent of our many female artists and I hope it’s a springboard to further and well-deserved success,” said The Honourable Di Farmer, Minister for Child Safety, Youth and Women and Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence.

“As well as the opportunity to celebrate tremendous talent, AWMA provides a platform for artists and music practitioners including those in regional and remote areas, to come together, to learn and empower one another. We received almost double the nominations this year, from every state and across all areas of diversity, reflecting the urgent need for change in the Australian music industry,” said AWMA Founding Director and Executive Producer, Vicki Gordon.

Vika & Linda Bull, Marcia Hines and Joy McKean have been nominated for the Lifetime Achievement Award.
