Western Australian rock musicians have constantly made the grade on a national level, and their journey to fame starts right here at a grassroots level. Support from fans is one way that generates interest in local acts. The WA Music Industry Association announces the WAMi Awards 2009 nominees. Public voting for some categories is now open, such as Most Popular Music Event, Most Popular Music Venue, Most Popular Act and others. Voting is open until 30 April. Log on to the WAMi website to register your vote today and play a part in the musical history of Western Australia. The State Library of WA collects recordings of all Western Australian artists and is keen to hear about personal collections of recordings and ephemera such as photos, fliers, tickets and posters.
