Screen Music Awards 2022

November 15, 2022

In the first real-life celebration of Australian screen composers in two years, APRA AMCOS and the Australian Guild of Screen Composers (AGSC) are set to honour Australia’s finest creators of film, television, documentary and advertising music at the 21st Screen Music Awards in Melbourne/Naarm on November 15.

Co-hosting the first live Screen Music Awards since 2019 will be singer and actor Akina Edmonds and comedian, actor and writer Anne Edmonds. 

The award ceremony will feature interpretations of the four Feature Film Score of the Year nominations performed live by the Screen Awards orchestra, led by the event’s musical director, Jessica Wells whose compositions cross many genres in the classical, commercial and film music worlds.

Panels of widely respected Australian screen composers will determine four nominees for 10 categories. The winners of Most Performed Screen Composer – Australia and Most Performed Screen Composer – Overseas are decided through analysis of performance activity reflected by royalty earnings.
