Songwriters can now enter the 2017 Silver Scrolls via APRA’s website.
This year the awards will be held on September 28 at the Dunedin Town Hall, with the role of musical director falling to local legend Shayne Carter (Straitjacket Fits, the Double Happys, Dimmer).
“It’ll be fun playing musical match ups and trying to find an interesting, and hopefully not so obvious array of artists to perform the songs and maybe find angles in them that the writers may never have thought of,” says Shayne.
The awards will comprise the presentation of the APRA Silver Scroll Award, the SOUNZ Contemporary Award, the APRA Maioha Award, the APRA Best Original Music in a Feature Film Award, and the APRA Best Original Music in a Series Award, as well as an induction of one legendary act into the NZ Music Hall of Fame.
Make sure you enter before nominations close on May 31!
