Film and television music awards to be added to the APRA Silver Scroll Awards
Two new awards recognising the achievements of New Zealand’s film and television composers are being added to the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll Awards - APRA Best Original Music in a Feature Film and APRA Best Original Music in a Series.
The APRA Silver Scroll Awards are an annual ceremony that celebrates the achievements of New Zealand’s songwriters and composers. “The addition of these awards is a milestone for us” says APRA AMCOS’ Director of NZ Operations, Anthony Healey. “Film and television composers are a large and active part of our membership, and we are pleased to be able to recognise their achievements through the presentation of these awards”
While traditionally the awards are hosted in Auckland, this year they will be held in Wellington. “I'm delighted that the APRA Silver Scroll Awards are making a return to Wellington and welcome the addition of the new awards celebrating music for screen” says Mayor Celia Wade-Brown. “It is the perfect location for the inaugural presentation of the awards given the capital’s special relationship with film”.
