The Australian Women In Music Awards has released its finalists for 2019, with the likes of NGAIIRE, Thelma Plum, Mojo Juju and Alice Skye all up for awards.
Across 15 categories, the awards celebrate the female leaders of Australia’s music industry on and off-stage, with awards highlighting everything from photography and production. Three new categories have been added this year, including Excellence in Classical Music, Excellence in Image Making, and Music Journalism, under which Music Junkee’s editor Jules LeFevre has been nominated.
One of the tightest categories is the Songwriter award, which sees Thelma Plum, Mojo Juju and NGAIIRE nominated. Categories will be judged from a panel of industry professionals, and the winners will be announced at the AWMA Ceremony, Concert and Party on Wednesday October 9 in Brisbane.
