Professional Development Awards 2017

The biennial APRA Professional Development Awards exist to provide support to emerging songwriters and composers. Nine awards will be given out, with each recipient receiving a game-changing $15,000 cash prize to support their development. It is expected that the funds will help recipients attend workshops, music education courses, composer seminars, co-writing sessions and other relevant activities - locally or internationally.

Once again in 2017, the Smugglers of Light initiative formed part of the PDAs. Now in its second year, this Award will provide a promising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music or media practitioner a grant of $12,000.
