“Not many states in the world have such a depth of talent in so many different genres to even justify a Genre Awards” stated Music Victoria CEO Patrick Donovan.

“Awards play an important role by recognising artistic achievements and giving a leg up to the most deserving acts, while acting as a filter for fans seeking out the best new music.”
