Submissions are officially open as the whole state comes together to celebrate twelve months of amazing songs, albums, festivals and live shows.

Music Victoria have announced the return of their beloved Music Victoria Awards this November, celebrating a massive year of music for the state. Long-heralded as Australia’s home of music, this year’s successes both across the country and overseas have cemented the state’s place at the head of Australia’s music table and they need YOU to help shape this year’s nominees.

The public are invited to head to Music Victoria’s social platforms (Facebook / Instagram / Twitter) to tag the artists, venues and creatives they’d like to see nominated, while those working in the industry are invited to be part of Music Victoria and share in the celebration of music and important work that the organisation does for the sector.

Submissions for the 2022 Music Victoria Awards are now open until midnight on Sunday 31 July, so be sure to head to the Music Victoria website to sign up, become a member (if you aren’t already) and make your submission today.
