GC music awards call-out


LOCAL musos are invited to nominate for the 2021 Gold Coast Music Awards to help boost their careers.

Last year’s big winners included Casey Barnes, Eliza and the Delusional­s, Busby Marou, Tijuana Cartel and Julz Parker (Hussy Hicks).

Eight categories are open for self-nomination, including: artist, breakout artist, live act, musician, release, song, venue and video.

The people’s choice award will be open to all finalists and a category new last year, the Gold Coast music prize, will be given to a nominee under the age of 25 by the judging panel.

The inaugural winner of last year’s music prize, electro indie-pop starlet DENNIS, said since winning she’d created with big budget companies, toured with major up-andcoming Australian acts and been supported by awardwinni­ng marketing and media.

“Everyone involved wants the best for you and to see you grow as a Gold Coast artist,” she said. “They’re all on your team.” The eligibilit­y period is January 1, 2020, to March 31, 2021.

Nomination­s close on June 10. For more details head to gcmusicawa­
