The Screen Music Awards represent the successful marriage of two defining elements of contemporary Australian culture: music and film. Presented by APRA AMCOS in conjunction with the Australian Guild of Screen Composers (AGSC), the ceremony is our chance to acknowledge excellence and innovation in the field of screen composition.
The Screen Awards honour music composers across thirteen categories. APRA AMCOS uses statistical analysis to define nominations based on performance activity, as reflected by earnings, for two categories: Most Performed Screen Composer - Australia, and Most Performed Screen Composer - Overseas. Panels of highly respected Australian film and television composers determine four nominees across each of the remaining ten categories. The Distinguished Services to the Australian Screen Award is given at the discretion of the APRA Board of Directors.
