The South Australian Music (SAM) Awards return this November and entries are now open, with the winners to be announced later this year at the annual presentation ceremony.
A stand out fixture on the UNESCO Adelaide City of Music’s calendar of events, the awards exist to recognise, promote and celebrate excellence in the South Australian contemporary music industry.
Online entries across a range of categories run from today until August 12, so musicians can nominate now for a chance to be recognised in the elite company of previous winners such as A.B. Original and Tkay Maidza.
Once again, the award categories will include both People’s Choice Awards, voted by the public, and SAM Awards, selected by a judging panel of local and national industry peers, awarded on November 8 at the music industry’s night of nights – the SAM Awards Gala Ceremony.
