Nominations now open for 2023 Australian Women In Music Awards


Nominations for the 2023 Australian Women in Music Awards are officially open from today – appropriately, on International Women’s Day.

The awards shine  a light on the accomplishments of women across all areas of industry, from onstage to those working behind the scenes, technicians, leaders, elders, performers, songwriters, producers, engineers, film-makers and photographers, music journalists, stylists, managers and more.

Nominations for 18 AWMA categories close on 26 April, with the award ceremony, concert and conference to be held in Brisbane on September 26 and 27. The full 2023 Australian Women in Music Awards and Conference Program will be announced soon.

Full details here.

Founding Executive Producer and Program Director Vicki Gordon says “AWMA has become a powerful industry leader, to connect people and communities and to break down the systemic issues which have held women back for decades.”

“Through AWMA we have effectively raised the collective voice demanding equitable access, safety and recognition for women in the Australian music industry. This is reflected in the 936 women nominated, the 136 finalists and each of the 50 recipients who have been recognised for their extraordinary achievements since our inaugural event in 2018.”

“This year we are excited to announce the Inaugural Women in Heavy Music category, created in direct consultation with industry to reflect the depth and breadth of influence women are having on music in this country.”
