The Screen Music Awards To Return To Melbourne in 2022

The APRA AMCOS Screen Music Awards will be back in Melbourne as a live event in 2022. It will be the first live Screen Music Awards since 2019.

The belated event was due to take place in November but uncertainty in the pandemic meant it was best to bump the event to February 2022.

APRA AMCOS CEO Dan Ormston said in a statement, “Our annual Screen Music Awards will be our first ‘in real life’ celebration of screen composers in two years! It will be truly wonderful to gather once again in Melbourne and honour the extraordinary soundscape Australian screen composers give to films, television series, advertisements and documentaries with the orchestra performing those nominated soundtracks in the beautiful Forum Melbourne. This year, we will also celebrate an extraordinary year of advocacy with APRA AMCOS and the AGSC fighting hard for new legislation that will see a significant boost to local screen production to enhance the livelihoods of screen composers, the unsung heroes of our country’s screen industry.”

The 2022 event on 22 February 2022 will be co-hosted by Nakkiah Lui, Akina Edmonds and Uncle Jack Charles.
