Our panel of independent, expert judges listen to all eligible ALBUM releases for each calendar year. The current panel of volunteer judges is comprised of established musicians, retailers and media.
To be a judge they have agreed to not let any personal and/or commercial relations to interfere with their judgements, to listen to each assigned album at least once all the way through, and to only consider what they hear (not the artists’ commercial success or any other factor).
These judges devote many hours to this process…. on behalf of Australia’s music business, we thank them.
