The Silver Scroll Award is New Zealand's most prestigious songwriting award. The award has been presented since 1965, and celebrates original pop music.
The process of choosing the winner of the Scroll is unique in itself. APRA Members vote from the Top Twenty finalist songs, and are the ones to choose the Top 5 finalists and ultimately the winning song.
As the only peer voted music award in New Zealand, the APRA Silver Scroll Award isn’t a popularity contest or industry competition. This award is all about songwriters recognising the outstanding achievements of their peers and honouring the craft of songwriting.
Since 1965, the APRA Silver Scroll Award has recognised outstanding New Zealand songwriters and their works, including: Wayne Mason, Sharon O'Neill, Hammond Gamble, Shona Laing, Dave Dobbyn, Bic Runga, Don McGlashan, Neil Finn, Chris Knox, Greg Johnson, and Brooke Fraser.
The APRA Silver Scroll Award is suitably engraved and in the recipients care for eleven months, and the winner receives a payment of $5,000.
