Music awards deadline nears

9:10 pm on 12 July 2011

Māori musicians have less than a month to get their nominations in for the Waiata Māori Music Awards.

The event is being held in Hawke's Bay in September.

Director Tama Huata says in 2010 there were entries from Australia and this year hopes to receive nominations from Māori musicians further afield, including the United States and Europe.

Nominations close on 31 July.
