A panel of respected industry figures gathered in Sydney in May for a wide-ranging discussion on the eligibility criteria for the 2023 ARIA Awards.
The lively, honest, and informative chat included artist manager Jess Keeley (Isabella Manfredi, Jaguar Jonze), Annabelle Herd (ARIA), Lynne Small (ARIA), Bill Cullen (One Louder), and Mitaru McGaughey (Blak Label Music) on the panel.
The group unpacked the importance of transparency, the need to reflect the diversity of the Australian music industry, and the challenges of keeping up with the ever-changing music landscape.
Annabelle Herd, CEO of ARIA and PPCA, stressed the importance of making the eligibility criteria clear and accessible to all. Herd and fellow ARIA executive Lynne Small noted ARIA’s commitment to listening to feedback from the industry and making changes to the criteria as needed during what organisation’s current consultation period.
The panel discussed common misconceptions related to the ARIA Awards, why a Top 5 ARIA Chart placing is currently difficult for local acts, why ARIA puts on a televised awards show each year, and much more.
