Silver Scroll Awards

The Silver Scroll Award, New Zealand's most prestigious music award, has been presented since 1965. With unique renditions of the finalists works and an opportunity to celebrate New Zealand’s finest songwriters and composers the “Silver Scrolls” has become the industry’s favourite night out.

The 2007 Silver Scroll Awards were held on Tuesday 18 September at the Auckland Town Hall.


Along with the Silver Scroll are the SOUNZ Contemporary Award, recognising creative excellence by a NZ classical composer and the APRA Maioha Award, presented for the best Te Reo Maori song in of the year. Plus, the Most Performed Work Overseas Award for 'Don't Dream It's Over' by Neil Finn; and the Most Performed Work in New Zealand Award for 'Deciphering Me' by Brooke Fraser were presented on the night.

This years Awards also saw the inaugural induction into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame. It was suggested to us some time ago that we should begin to recognise those very special writers, artists and performers who have made a significant impact on NZ culture with their music.

APRA are proud to have Mr Jordan Luck as their first inductee, presented by Mike Chunn.



Such tributes in many cases are long overdue, this addition along with the Silver Scroll, APRA Maioha, SOUNZ Contemporary, Most Performed Work in New Zealand and Most Performed Work Overseas, the Awards are indeed an extraordinary night.
