Turning the spotlight to women in music

Some of the biggest names in the Australian music industry have joined forces to support the Australian Women in Music Awards.

AWMA is turning the spotlight on women; recognising First Nations and multicultural performers and music practitioners, focusing on excellence in artistry, technical and production skills, leadership, cross-cultural development, songwriting, music journalism, music photography, film making, classical music, humanitarian work and more.

"Women songwriters have dominated Australian music for a long time. As the world recognises this, slowly, Australia must too."

_ Jen Cloher

“I welcome this initiative to recognise and celebrate all the incredible contributions to music by Australian women”

_ Tina Arena

” I know that there are vast numbers of men who support women and huge numbers of women who want more so together let’s create the mother of all paradigm shifts.

_ Jenny Morris

Change the Game

Let’s create the mother of all paradigm shifts
