The APRA Professional Development Awards exist to provide support to emerging songwriters and composers. Nine recipients will each receive a game-changing $10,000 cash prize to support their development, along with a prize from Australis Music.
The Smugglers of Light Foundation ATSI Music and Media Award also returns in 2021 to provide an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander music or media practitioner with a grant of $12,000, as well as a prize from Australis Music. The award is supported and assessed by the Smugglers of Light Foundation, set up in memory of Eli Westlake.
It is expected that the funds will help recipients attend workshops, music education courses, composer seminars, co-writing sessions and other relevant activities – locally or internationally.
Applications will close 5.00pm AEDT Thursday 25 March 2021
