The Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) is calling for all members to nominate their favourite song of last year for the prestigious ‘Song of the Year’ award. Voted for by fellow APRA members, the Song of the Year award is the only peer voted music award in the country, which honours the craft of songwriting and recognises outstanding achievement.
This year, members are being asked to log-on to the APRA|AMCOS website www.apra-amcos.com.au to nominate their favourite work of the last twelve months by 15th March 2010. By simply entering their favourite song, members will automatically go into the draw to win a Gibson Les Paul Studio Guitar in Fireburst valued at $2,800. From the 15th March, members will then be able to officially vote from a shortlist of nominees.
The winner of the Song of the Year Award will be announced at the 2010 APRA Awards, which are to be held at the Sydney Convention Centre on June 21st 2010, as part of Song Summit [www.songsummit.com.au].
Sally Howland, Director Member Services at APRA| AMCOS says: “The Song of the Year award celebrates songwriting as voted by APRA members. That’s what makes this Award so unique; songwriters voting for songwriters!”
Since 1991, the APRA Song of the Year has recognised outstanding Australian songwriters such as: Glenn Richards "One Crowded Hour", Yothu Yindi and Paul Kelly "Treaty”, Neil Murray "My Island Home”, Powderfinger "Passenger" & "My Happiness", Kasey Chambers "Not Pretty Enough", Missy Higgins "Scar" and Ben Lee "Catch My Disease", Daniel Johns and Julian Hamilton “Straight Lines”.
