The annual WAMAwards are quickly approaching, and today the nominations have been revealed. You now have until Thursday October 11th to vote for your favourite West Australian musicians, labels, and industry figureheads across a range of categories.

We do warn you though, competition is tight. It’s been an incredible year for the WA music scene, the WAMAwards reflects that plainly.
