First presented in 2003, the APRA Maioha Award seeks to recognise excellence in contemporary Maori music and to acknowledge waiata in, or strongly featuring Te Reo Maori.
The name Maioha embraces creativity and translates as “a spontaneous composition which reflects a very deep emotional understanding”. Our panel of judges are asked to consider the creative content of the music and lyrics along with the use of Te Reo Maori when selecting the finalists.
The winner of the APRA Maioha Award receive a $3,000 cash prize and are the annual guardians of Te Ngore, our award sculpture crafted by Brian Flintoff.
