The APRA Best Original Music in a Feature Film and APRA Best Original Music in a Series Awards celebrate New Zealand's screen composers. The awards recognise the relationship that composers have with cinema and the power of music to illuminate, elevate and support real and imagined worlds, narratives, images and performances.

Composing for film and television is a craft that requires a unique set of skills. The best soundtracks are able to meet the creative and structural needs of a production while still allowing the composer’s identity to be felt, working in harmony with the film-maker and the audience. It’s a subtle art and one that relies as much upon collaboration and communication as it does upon musical ability.
