Time is running out to enter the 2019 LiveLighter West Australian Country Music Awards, with entries to close on September 30.

Music director Sharon Winter said the award night was the “most important event” on the West Australian Country Music calendar.

“It’s a celebration of all that is fantastic and popular in the local WA country music scene and a great opportunity to publicly recognise achievements,” Ms Winter said.

There are 10 categories artists of all ages can enter, a People’s Choice Award and $8500 in cash and prizes to be won.

“The winners of several categories will have the opportunity to perform live in front of a very large audience during the Boyup Brook Country Music Festival,” she said.

“We would like to encourage singers, songwriters and musicians to enter the Awards, which have continued to develop, recognise and honour many WA artists and has assisted in forging careers of many successful musicians.

“We know how hard artists work to develop themselves, their talents and their careers and we want to offer the exposure that these great artists deserve.

“If you are ready to place your single, EP, video clip or album before prominent industry judges, then what are you waiting for?”
