Music awards

Torika Tokalau
Wednesday, May 21, 2014

ARTISTS that produced music from 1998 until 2003 will not go unnoticed.

This was the message from Fiji Performing Rights Association president Eremasi Tamanisau Jr as they look forward to the 2014 FPRA Music Awards in July.

Mr Tamanisau said the last music awards in Fiji, the Vakalutuivoce Awards, recognised artist works until 1998.

"So there's been a lapse of about 16 years," Mr Tamanisau said.

"So we do not want those artists that have been working hard in that period to be overlooked. We also want to take into account the achievements they have made and for it to be recognised."

This recognition will be in the Most Outstanding Service award from the period 1999 until 2003.

Mr Tamanisau said all members of FPRA were eligible to enter with entries to close on June 9th.

"Awards, in all the 12 categories, will be for all members and composers. Entry forms are here for all members to fill out, in the category they feel they can compete in.

"They need to send us the completed form, attach the lyrics of the song and the track and we have a panel of judges who will decide on the winners of the awards."

He said FPRA would not be involved in the judging at all and an independent panel of judges would be appointed to choose the respective winners.
