The Pacific Music Awards Trust have announced that the 2021 Pacific Music Awards (PMA), will be held on Wednesday 1 September at the Vodafone Events Centre.

Last year the Pacific Music Awards were proudly produced as an online presentation, on 3 October, honouring our amazing 2020 finalists, award recipients and Pacific music community.  The late awards presentation in 2020, has impacted the 2021 timeline, but the Trust are excited about working on the 2021 ceremony, with plans to return to a live event.

For the third year, we are proud sponsors alongside Base FM for the Best Pacific Hip Hop Artist award. Last year the Base FM crew were behind the scenes of the online presentation and were able to catch up with a handful of the nominees.

ENTER THE 2021 PACIFIC MUSIC AWARDS! Pacific artists who have released singles, EPs or albums for sale during 1 January – 31 December 2020, will be eligible to enter, with nominations due on Monday 3 May 2021.  All nominations are completed online and can be submitted by the artist or their representative.  For the full information about entering the 2021 Pacific Music Awards, including the 2021 Terms & Conditions of Entry, please go to the Pacific Music Awards Entries page:
