Hey, just a heads up for any Australian composers that visit the site.

The APRA Composer Awards. Details below.

Unfortunately I've written no film music this year, and hardly any concert works of merit, so unless they accept game music, I won't be entering.

It looks interesting, so check it out:

The APRA Professional Development Awards are conducted
every two years by APRA in conjunction with music
organisations and institutions involved in the representation or
education of Australian music writers. The Awards offer cash,
travel and recognition to music writers in the early stages of
their careers. The cash component is $10,000 plus a further
$1,500 to assist with travel costs.

The PDAs are for Australian writers who can demonstrate
that they possess outstanding potential in their field.
Up to six professional composers and songwriters will
receive Awards. Assistance will be provided in the form
of overseas travel to enable recipients to further their
careers by attending music education courses, song writing
workshops, composer seminars, participating in co-writing
activities or other relevant opportunities.


Writers nominating for a PDA should align themselves to one
of the following genres of music:
  • Popular Contemporary (2 Awards are given in this category which includes Pop,
Rock, Blues, Folk, Hip Hop, Dance and R&B)
  • Country
  • Jazz
  • Classical
  • Film and Television

The Jessica Michalik Contemporary Music Endowment
will also be announced as part of the PDAs. Established
by the producers of the Big Day Out and administered
by APRA, the Award will provide a promising Australian
songwriter or band a development grant of $10,000.
All nominations and queries for this Award should be
forwarded directly to the Big Day Out producers.

So yeah, if you're an Australian composer or songwriter, you can find more information here, as well as the official document here.
