Finalists have been announced for this year's second annual Australian Women In Music Awards (AWMAs), with over 40 candidates selected from across the music and entertainment industry.

Ngaiire, Mojo Juju, Christine Anu, Claire Edwardes and Alice Skye are among the stellar cast of finalists for the 2019 AWMAs, to be presented at a star-studded ceremony, concert and party at Brisbane Powerhouse in October.

This year’s AWMAs include three new award categories for Excellence in Classical Music, Music Journalism and Image Making. Producers, Engineers, Film Makers, Photographers, Songwriters, Industry Leaders, Artist Managers and more are set to be acknowledged and celebrated in their own right at this year’s ceremony − recognition that has gone untapped for far too long in an industry built on creativity and tenacity.

"As well as the opportunity to celebrate tremendous talent, AWMA provides a platform for artists and music practitioners including those in regional and remote areas, to come together, to learn and empower one another," AWMA Founding Director and Executive Producer Vicki Gordon says.

"We received almost double the nominations this year, from every state and across all areas of diversity, reflecting the urgent need for change in the Australian music industry."

The AWMA Ceremony, Concert and Party will feature some of Australia’s biggest music names and most inspiring artists, with performances from Renée Geyer, Katie Noonan, Clare Bowditch, Melinda Schneider, Ngaiire, Kaylah Truth, Cheryl Barker, Tamara-Anna Cislowska and more.

The AWMAs is a two-day programme that also includes a series of thought-provoking forums and discussions such as 'Visibility in Hip Hop: Women On The Front Line', 'The Art of Rebellion: The Intersection of Music & Politics' and 'Image Making: The Changing Face of Music' as well as a keynote address by noted broadcaster, musician, writer, teacher and philanthropist Eddie Ayres.

The 2019 Australia Women In Music Awards is on at Brisbane Powerhouse 8-9 October.
