Queensland Music Awards

Celebrating Queensland Music

The QMAs recognise the diverse people and places that make contemporary popular music an invaluable part of our state's cultural heritage. We invite all Queenslanders to celebrate the artists, industry leaders, festivals and live music venues that keep the joy of music alive in our communities. Artists from all over the state in a number of categories are recognised each year for their songwriting and musical excellence. The Grant McLennan Lifetime Achievement Award recognises artists and industry who have made a lifetime contribution to Queensland Music.

The awards are judged by music industry professionals from all over the country and finalists and winners have the chance to catapult their careers into national significance. Winning a QMA is a key milestone in the career of many successful Queensland artists.

2022 entries have been extended to 11:59pm (AEST) 28 October 2021.
