JMC Partners with Rolling Stone Australia Awards in 2021

If there's one thing that JMC Academy prides itself on above all else, it is our commitment to celebrating local Australian Talent, which is why we've teamed up with Rolling Stone Australia for their annual award season!

Sailor Jerry Presents the 2021 Rolling Stone Australia Awards


JMC is proud to support and partner with the Sailor Jerry Rolling Stone Australia Awards, paying tribute to the best and brightest of the local music scene on 31st March 2021!

The awards will pay tribute to the year that was in music, honouring local music exports across five categories: Best Record, Best Single, Best New Artist, the Rolling Stone Global Award, and the Rolling Stone Reader’s Award. The Rolling Stone Global Award will be judged by Rolling Stone’s global staff members to acknowledge the Australian artist they just can’t get enough of.

A night of live music, unlimited drinks and the celebration of Australia’s incredible music scene, the unmissable music event of the year will highlight the must watched and most loved acts sharing their talent.

“We’re so excited to bring back Rolling Stone’s award show to Australia” stated Rolling Stone US President and Chief Operating Officer, Gus Wenner.

“The opportunity to continue elevating the Rolling Stone brand in the awards space with an audience of passionate music fans is something we’ve wanted to do for so long, and we’re thrilled to finally be able to do so in partnership with Brag Media and with the help of all our amazing sponsors!”

Rolling Stone Australia is giving its magazine subscribers the power to determine an award winner too. Subscribers can cast their vote for their favourite Australian artist by voting for the Rolling Stone Reader’s Award now, with voters also in with a chance to receive an invite to the official ceremony along with 3 of their friends.

“2020 will undoubtedly go down as one of the most trying, tumultuous years for music,” said The Brag Media Managing Editor, Poppy Reid. “But while our local music industry is crippled by a global pandemic, it has not stopped local artists from releasing remarkable music.

Our Director of Marketing Karen Makarkis adds, “To have our own JMC students participating in the running of Australia’s first ever hosted Rolling Stone Awards alongside some of the biggest names in music today is an honour.”
