Award for Excellence in Experimental Practice

For works, people or events that interrogate, extend, or challenge standard artistic practice within the Australian repertoire.

Awards for Excellence can be awarded for a range of activities including specific projects, activities, recordings or recording projects, or events undertaken by the individual or organisation.

Awards are made for activities which took place in the year prior to the award (2023). Nominations for sustained contribution should be made in the Luminary Award categories.

In all Excellence Categories, the winner in the previous year is not eligible to be nominated in the following year.
Last year's winner: Eve Klein for City Symphony

To nominate you need to be either a member of APRA AMCOS or the Australian Music Centre (AMC). At this stage, you just need to provide essential information about your nominee (category, work, name of nominee etc.) and write a short paragraph on why you're nominating this person, organisation, or work. We do not collect support materials at this stage, but we do ask for a contact email for the nominee if you know it.


Once nominations close, we will contact all eligible nominees for support materials to add to their nomination. Depending on the category, these materials might include a score, recording, documentation of projects nominated, and/or documentation of consultation with relevant communities if Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) is used in the nominated work or activities.


Please note that you cannot self-nominate in any category. This includes organisations/people you work for, represent, or who work for you. You can only nominate once per category, but you can nominate in more than one category.
