CORNER AWARD

The Corner Award was launched in 2016 as a way to say thanks and give something back to the industry that has been so good to us for so long. The annual award is dedicated to celebrating artists who are breaking the mould and making an impact with their music.

CORNER AWARD 2019 SHORTLIST ANNOUNCED!

The Corner has revealed the eight artists shortlisted to be in the running to take home the 2019 edition of the Corner Award. Celebrating the cream of the local musical crop, the award aims to celebrate artists seen to be leading the charge into a bright, innovative and exciting future for Australian music.

A specially selected brains trust of representatives from all facets of the industry have worked tirelessly to whittle the longlist down to just a small handful of nominees. From these, one will be awarded the coveted prize and join the ranks of previous recipients Sampa The Great, Cable Ties and Baker Boy who’ve gone on to take on international tours, release amazing debut albums and more.

The 2019 Corner Award recipient will be announced soon, so stay tuned!

For me the Corner Award added more to my repertoire because it’s a prestigious new award. It moved me away from the realm of just an underground artist putting me into the realm of a more professional artist.
— Sampa The Great (2016 Corner Award Recipient)
