The Screen Music Awards represents the APRA, AMCOS and the Australian Guild of Screen Composers (AGSC) recognition of excellence in music for film and television in Australia for the past 12 months.
“Our members are doing fantastic work in the film and television space, and the Screen Music Awards highlight and honour their talent and success,” Brett Cottle, Chief Executive APRA AMCOS, said in a statement.
