The SOUNZ Contemporary Award, which was established in 1998, is a project of APRA, Australasian Performing Right Association and SOUNZ.
Composers who are members of APRA are annually invited to enter up to two works which have been premiered in the previous year. Pieces may have been premiered publicly, recorded for radio broadcast or by a recognised recording label for distribution, or performed by a professional orchestra in a professional development situation. The works can be for solo, chamber, ensemble, choral, opera, orchestral, electro-acoustic or any combination of these.
SOUNZ Centre for NZ Music convenes a jury to select three finalists whose entry shows outstanding compositional excellence and inspiration.
