Check out the full list of WA nominees ahead of the award ceremony on May 16.

Counting now-international-exports in Methyl Ethel and KUČKA as past winners, the WAM Song Of The Year Awards have been crucial in the launch of some of Perth's best acts into a national and occasionally, international limelight, celebrating the best our state has to offer which, just in case you haven't got the memo, is a hell of a lot. With $45k worth of goodies to be won (ranging from $3000 cash to recording sessions, publishing deals, digital marketing assessments and a whole lot of other stuff that'll be sure to help you get your name out - full deets HERE), WAM have just announced their nominees for its 2017/2018 awards and it features some of our best talent once again - from the big names of Stella Donnelly and Ziggy Ramo to small regional acts and others still pushing those hard hours to get into the limelight.

Check out the full list of nominees below, and mark May 16 off on your calendars for the award ceremony at Fly By Night Club, where acts including J.F.K., Feels and more are set to play. Grab more info and tickets HERE, and check out the full details below:
