Nominations for the Jazz Bell Awards for 2015 are now open.

The Jazz Bell Awards, named after jazz icon the late Graeme Bell, acknowledge excellence in jazz performance, creativity and recordings.

Albert Dadon, the founder of the Awards said in a statement, “Over the 12 years of the Jazz Bell Awards, I have never failed to be impressed by the exceptional talent of the jazz community in Australia. The quality of recordings sent in for nominations year after year always makes it a very difficult task for the judges choosing the finalists in each category.”

The Jazz Bell Awards recognise the depth of the jazz genre overlooked by the ARIA Awards with eight awards handed out on the night.

The awards categories for 2015, which share a prize pool of $40,000 – $5,0000 per category, are:

Best Australian Jazz Vocal Album
Best Australian Modern Jazz Album
Best Australian Contemporary ‘Avant-garde’ Jazz Album
Best Australian Trad Jazz Album
Best Australian Jazz Song of the Year
Best Australian Jazz Ensemble
Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year
Graeme Bell Hall of Fame – in recognition of an outstanding career

Nominations will close on Wednesday 11 February for the
2015 Australian Jazz Bell Awards
Nomination form and guidelines can be downloaded from
www.bellawards.org

The Jazz Bell Awards will be announced at the Regent Ballroom in Melbourne on April 30.
