Nominations open tomorrow for the inaugural The Industry Observer Awards, an all-new event taking place at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Monday, March 27, 2018.
With categories covering management, publishing, publicity, community radio and more, the Australasia-focused ceremony will recognise those that stand behind the artists and celebrate their genius, dedication and creativity.
From tomorrow, the wider industry will be asked to nominate those they believe are worthy of recognition for their hard work.
TIO welcomes any person to join the nominations process; they can send in their nominations from anywhere in the world, and nominate as many times for as many people as they like.
TIO encourages people to self nominate to ensure nothing in your submission is left out and you have the best chance at being shortlisted.
However, the TIO Awards were created to recognise the incredible industry figures in Australasia only; all award winners must have some activity in either Australia or New Zealand.
Stay tuned for details and instructions on how to make a nomination for the 2018 TIO Awards, as well as the terms and conditions.
