The 2015 APRA Silver Scroll Awards will be held at Vector Arena on Thursday 17th September.

This year marks 50 years for the APRA Silver Scroll Award. Since 1965 the award has graced the mantle pieces of some of New Zealand’s most well-loved songwriters, including Ray Columbus, Sharon O’Neill, Dave Dobbyn, Neil Finn, Bic Runga, Ella Yelich O’Connor & Joel Little, and last year’s winners Joshua and Tami Neilson.

The winner of the APRA Silver Scroll Award is decided by APRA’s membership of songwriters and composers. All entries to the award are first narrowed down to a long-list by a panel of five prominent APRA members, which are then voted on by the wider APRA membership of over 10,000 New Zealand songwriters and composers. The votes of the wider APRA membership determine the winner of the Silver Scroll Award, as well as the five finalists.

Alongside the APRA Silver Scroll Award, the following awards are also presented:

  • APRA Maioha Award
  • SOUNZ Contemporary Award
  • APRA Best Original Music in a Feature Film
  • APRA Best Original Music in a Series
  • Most Performed New Zealand Work in New Zealand
  • most Performed New Zealand Work Inernationally


The APRA Silver Scroll Awards also provides an opportunity to celebrate the songwriters and musicians that have shaped our musical landscape through an induction into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame.

A big thanks to our sponsors Becks and Peter Yealands Wines for their support of the awards.
