Music Manager or Celebrity Apprentice?

Music Manager or Celebrity Apprentice?

Nominations are open for the 2017 Music Managers Awards.

Music management in these parts remains mostly a labour of love – the vast majority of local music managers go above and beyond for little or no reward.

The 2017 MMF awards will celebrate music managers who did an outstanding job for their artists during 2016 – both at home and internationally.

The following categories are open for nomination:

  • Manager of the Year
  • Breakthrough Manager of the Year
  • Self-Managed Artist of the Year
  • Emerging Manager of the Year
  • International Achievement
  • Best Small Venue
  • Best Large Venue
  • Best Independent Tour

At last year’s awards ceremony Ashley Page was named Manager of the Year (for the second time) for his work with Broods and Joel Little. Marlon Williams manager Alastair Burns (pictured above with Mel Parsons and Tami Neilson) took home the ‘International Achievement’ award.

The MMF is the collective voice for music managers and self-managed artists. It’s a non-profit trade association dedicated to helping grow artist manager businesses through education, networking and advocacy, aiming to improve music managers’ capacity to support the careers of the artists they represent.
