The Sunshine State is making preparations to spotlight some of its finest musical practitioners at next year's iteration of the annual Queensland Music Awards, and if you haven't entered yet, you're in luck, with QMusic revealing a one week extension for entries. 

Yep, that means you now have until next Monday 19 November to enter your songs and videos into 13 self-nominating genre categories.

“Queensland artists shouldn't miss this rare opportunity to showcase their gifts to the world," said QMusic CEO Joel Edmondson

“The QMAs have a rich history of unearthing hitherto completely unrecognised talent - we never know what new faces will grace the stage on the awards night, and go on to bigger and better things.” 

The extension comes after QMusic recently revealed the 2019 judging panel and $20,000 songwriting prize courtesy of The Music and NOVA 106.9.

The 2019 Queensland Music Awards will be held at the Royal International Convention Centre on Tuesday 19 March.
