Hooray! TMN’s music industry awards ‘The Tinnies’ are back
The Music Network’s TMN Tinnies return this year to celebrate those who are crushing it behind the scenes of Australia’s recorded music industry.
The only music industry awards of its kind, this year the categories grow from eight to 12. New arrivals include Sync of the year, Brand partnership of the year and Distributor of the year.
Previous winners include Michael Taylor, Maree Hamblion, Etcetc, M-Phazes, Cathy Oates, Sarah Aarons and the late Rob Potts for developing Morgan Evans with Kerry Roberts.
The 2020 TMN Tinnies are presented in partnership with Songtradr and Australian Radio Network.

TMN’s editor Vivienne Kelly said it was important to finish this tumultuous, and sometimes torturous, year on a high.
“We know everyone might be a little tired of staring at their computer screens this year, and missing the electric buzz of a crowded room full of your industry friends and peers – or the buzz from champagne, or from actually collecting an award and celebrating in person – but we’re keen to give the industry something fun to celebrate as we wave goodbye to 2020 in the best way we can,” she said.
“The TMN Tinnies celebrate creative excellence across the Australian music business, and even if we can’t do it in person, we’re really looking forward to seeing the fantastic nominations roll in.”
