Started in 2008, the Children's Music Awards strive to highlight & support the New Zealand Songwriters & Composers that write for our nation's children. APRA sponsors two awards- the APRA Children's Song of the Year and the What Now Childen's Music Video of the Year. The Awards are held annually in Christchurch as part of StarFest, the finale event of Christchurch City Council's two-week KidsFest.
The APRA Children’s Song of the Year, judged by an independent panel, celebrates the songwriters and composers who write for the children of New Zealand. The winner of the Children’s Song of the Year will be awarded $1000 prize along with a framed certificate.
The What Now Children’s Music Video of the Year celebrates the songwriters, composers and video makers who have made a music video for New Zealand children. All entries are judged by an independent judging panel that have been chosen on their expertise on children’s music and eye for quality and innovative video production. The top three videos are chosen, and then it is over to the children to chose! Shown on kids TV programme What Now for 3 weeks leading up to the Children’s Music Awards, it is over to the kids to vote on their favourite video out of the Top 3. The winner of the Children’s Video of the Year will receive priceless promotion from having their video run of What Now for 4 weeks, as well as a framed certificate.
Further to the best song and video of the year, 2013 sees the return of the RIANZ Childrens Music Album of the Year. For more information and to enter visit: www.rianz.org.nz/nominations/children2013
The winner/s of all three awards will be announced at the Children’s Music Awards in Christchurch on Saturday 27th July 2013, as part of the two week long Kidsfest, run by the Christchurch City Council.
