Artist of the Year nomination
sponsored by HOTA, Home of the Arts
Open to any Gold Coast artist or band, of any age and genre, that has been actively recording, releasing or performing music on the Gold Coast during 2019.
This is a career-focused award and judges will be looking for an established artist who has produced a consistent body of work with significant outcomes during the year in question. The artist will have been actively touring and performing during 2019 – at least at the national level and will have a public profile outside of the Gold Coast.
The artist’s body of work will be considered for this award including track record, performance history (live and recorded), audience development, technical ability and supporting infrastructure, presence and ability to create a “package” that includes their music. All entrants are assessed on their contribution to the Gold Coast’s live music scene as well as their connection to the Gold Coast.
