WAM Song of the Year Virtual Awards Party
July 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EST
WAM’s Song Of The Year is an annual competition, promoting the talented, original songwriting of West Australian artists that embraces contemporary music of all genres, levels and ages.
First established in 1989, the annual Song of the Year Competition coordinated by WAM and presented by Act-Belong-Commit invites songwriters, musicians and bands across Western Australia to submit their songs for a chance to win across multiple categories. The songs are anonymously and independently judged by an expansive range of music industry experts, with the winner of each category also in the running for the Grand Prize. Each year an Awards night is held to announce the winners and showcase some of West Australia’s best home-grown talent.
The competition presents a rare exposure opportunity for WA songwriters to showcase their talents to industry practitioners, with the option to receive direct feedback on their submitted songs. Previous winners of the competition have included iconic WA acts Little Birdy, Stella Donnelly, Luke Steele, Abbe May and Carla Geneve.
The annual Song of the Year Awards Party takes a new and exciting turn this year – live and online straight to your screens! Hosted by the sensational MC Odette Mercy, the Virtual Awards Party will feature an opening address from Premier of Western Australia, Hon. Mark McGowan MLA.
