Musicians from the North Coast (Bellingen to the lower Tweed) and inland to Tenterfield, that is anywhere in the (02) 66 area code, are being called on to enter the Dolphin Music Awards. The North Coast Entertainment Association (NCEIA) is running its 28th event to focus on the best of our regional musicians with around $20,000 worth of prizes.

The awards are back up and running this year after a hiatus in 2018 due to the website failing.

‘The musicians put their songs onto the website so that they can be judged and last year the website went down,’ said Mariska Pinkerton the Coordinator of the NCEIA Dolphin music awards.

The new website will ensure that the 70 judges will have quick access to all the different categories that musicians can enter from song of the year to rock, pop, youth and jazz just to name a few.

‘When people produce music with every ounce of their being causing sound waves to affect the listener in an emotional way I am personally in awe of the process,’ said Mariska.

Entries open on June 1 and will culminate on the awards night that ill take place at the Ballina RSL on Tuesday October 15.

‘We believe that music is no just good for musicians but that it is good for people to listen to. Musicians put in so much effort and many of the prizes from the Dolphin Awards are industry specific like recording and video footage,’ said Mariska.

Find out all of the categories you can enter online at the Dolphin Awards.
