The annual event, which is marking its 50th presentation, aims to celebrate New Zealand’s songwriters and composers, and is decided by the votes of more than 10,000 APRA members - who are songwriters and composers themselves. The final 20 will be whittled down to a Top Five over the next few weeks, which will be revealed before the final ceremony on 17th September at Vector Arena. Here are the Top 20...
