Considering the size of New Zealand, we’re teeming with a relatively large number of authentic, funny and clever, world-class children’s music acts. Over the years the Top 40 NZ album charts has seen many of them chart, so it should be no surprise that eventually someone in the industry, namely APRA AMCOS in 2008, would decide to honour the genre with its own music award. The Children’s Music Awards 2016 will be held in Auckland in early August.
The top entries from the 2016 Children’s Music Awards will be featured on Music Box 2016 – an album released to coincide with the awards. Music Box will be distributed free to libraries and child-friendly organisations across the country, and will be available as a free download from www.apraamcos.co.nz in August.
