AMEB Award

Shining a spotlight on achievement in the performing arts community.

Introducing the AMEB Award - a development program that supports and acknowledges your efforts as a developing musician, dancer, actor or performer.

We know that artistry goes beyond practice and exams. You can contribute to the performing arts in various ways, both on stage and behind the scenes. The AMEB Award is a structured program that offers you a different perspective and the opportunity to expand your creative community and celebrate your successes.

You'll expand your creative horizons and ultimately grow as a performer by undertaking three main Award requirements: an AMEB Qualification, Performances and Contribution Activities.

Along with prestige and personal development, if you successfully complete the AMEB Award program, you’ll also positively contribute to your performing arts community.

Who is it for?
Calling all performing artists

Attention aspiring musicians, dancers, actors, and performers - this is your chance to shine!

The AMEB Award program is your opportunity to showcase your hard work, dedication, and passion for your chosen art form. It encourages you to push your limits, try new things, and collaborate with others.

Whether you choose to start with a Bronze, Silver or Gold AMEB Award, your participation involves completing Performances and Contribution Activities, as well as achieving an AMEB Qualification.

When you successfully complete the AMEB Award, you’ll gain recognition for your achievement in the form of an official AMEB Award certificate and Award pin.



How do I achieve an AMEB Award?
By completing three types of Award Requirements: an AMEB Qualification, Performances and Contribution Activities.

AMEB Qualification

To qualify for an AMEB Award, you must successfully complete the corresponding AMEB, Speech & Drama, Rockschool, or PAA exam before or during your Award enrolment.

As an Award participant, this requirement ensures you have a certain level of proficiency in your chosen art form and demonstrate your dedication to your craft.

Check our AMEB Award Qualifications List to see if your latest AMEB exam relates to a Bronze, Silver or Gold AMEB Award.


Regular performances are critical to your growth as a performer.

To complete the AMEB Award, you’ll also complete a specified number of performances (solo or as part of an ensemble) in front of an audience of at least five people, during your Award enrolment. At least one performance should be in your nominated discipline.

Contribution Activities

Participating in Contribution Activities will deepen your understanding and appreciation of your chosen art form, give back to the community, and promote the performing arts to a broader audience.

Contribution Activities aren't performances. They are your chance to showcase your valuable skills beyond playing an instrument, dancing, or acting. These behind-the-scenes contributions of time demonstrate your commitment to your craft and support your engagement with the arts beyond just performing.

If you undertake the Gold Award, you must also complete Substantial Contribution Activities focusing on leadership.
