AIR is also proud to announce global independent rights agency Merlin as a supporting partner of the AIR Awards and Indie-Con Australia. And in celebration of its tenth anniversary, Merlin is providing the winner of AIR’s newly added 2018 Outstanding Achievement Award with a $5,000 cash prize to be used for professional and business development.

The AIR Board has introduced this newly created award category to recognise an individual or group who has made a significant and lasting contribution to the Australian Independent Music Community.

“Merlin was born of the desire of a global group of independent industry leaders who wanted to ensure the independent sector could compete and succeed in the digital space. In light of that shared spirit, we are proud to be associated with the Outstanding Achievement Award at this year’s AIR Awards.

“Those who are at the heart of the ongoing success of the Australian independent music landscape succeed not only for themselves but for the sector as a whole, and being able to play a part in celebrating that is an honour and a pleasure. I look forward to being in Adelaide to see this year’s recipient revealed.” – Charles Caldas, Merlin CEO.

“We congratulate Merlin on its tenth anniversary and applaud it for the great results it has achieved for the global independent music sector and are thrilled to have them onboard this year as a valued partner.” – David Vodicka, AIR Chairman.
