A talented group of composers, performers and educators, including several first-time recipients, were announced last night as winners at the 2017 Art Music Awards. Together they represent the most outstanding contributions of 2016 across the genres of contemporary art music, contemporary jazz and experimental music.

The winners across 11 national categories and 8 state / territory categories were honoured at an industry celebration at the City Recital Hall in Sydney. Now in its 7th year, the Art Music Awards is the only national event in Australia to acknowledge the extraordinary achievements and creative successes of those who excel in these genres. From Art Music Fund-winning composers at the beginning of their careers to established creators unafraid to push boundaries, the Art Music Awards brings together a dynamic group of artists.

Conrad Gargett would like to congratulate all winners and finalists.
