Closing date extended for submissions

THE Fiji Performing Right Association has extended its closing date for submissions to the much-awaited FPRA Music Awards 2014.

FPRA executive member and Fijian music diva Laisa Vulakoro made the announcement on Wednesday afternoon at the FPRA headquarters in Suva.

Vulakoro attributed the extra week to the decision made to include all music, which was produced locally since 1999, since the last FPRA Music Awards were held back in 1998.

"This gives every Fijian who has made music from back then until now a chance to get an award if they are nominated," she said.

Some of the submissions for the 12 awards that are up for grabs include music sensations Savuto and Lena — both local composers and vocal artists who are excited to have been nominated for the awards.

"I'm really excited about this opportunity and I've been singing for a few years and it's really my passion," said Lena.

The closing date for all nominations is Monday June 16.
