Darren Lim moves closer to the APRA Professional Development Awards

Excited to say that I’ve moved into the second round of judging for the 2021 APRA Professional Development Awards. Fingers crossed to get shortlisted but I know it won’t be easy by the sheer volume of talent applying as well.


Dear Darren,

Congratulations! It is our pleasure to advise that your application has progressed to the second round of judging in the 2021 APRA Professional Development Awards.

The response has been overwhelming, with over 950 entries, all of which were assessed by our 29 Partner Organisations. Not an insignificant task, given the volume and quality of applications received.

They are currently being assessed by a judging panel comprised of music industry professionals, who will make the final determination. Following on from there, the shortlist will be announced on Tuesday 1 June with the winners being officially announced on Thursday 24 June.

Congratulations again on composing some fantastic work!

Yours sincerely,

Milly Petriella
