The Chandelier singer, who made history at the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) last year (16) when she became the first artist to be awarded Songwriter of the Year three times, has scored three nominations for the 2017 ceremony, with two mentions in the Pop Work of the Year category for Alive and Cheap Thrills and Most Played Australian Work for the latter.
DJ and producer Flume, who won a Grammy Award in February (17), landed on the shortlist four times with his tracks Say It, featuring Tove Lo, and Never Be Like You, featuring Kai, which are both nominated for Most Played Australian Work and Dance Work of the Year.
Other nominees for Most Played Australian Work include The Trouble with Us by Nick Murphy, formerly known as Chet Faker, and In My Blood by The Veronicas, which was also nominated for Pop Work of the Year alongside Troye Sivan's Youth and Guy Sebastian's Black & Blue.
Comedian and composer Tim Minchin is up for Song of the Year for his controversial fundraising song Come Home (Cardinal Pell), which was written to help survivors travel to Rome, Italy to witness Cardinal Pell give evidence before the Royal Commission into child sexual abuse. Minchin's competitors include Skeleton Tree by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Adore by Amy Shark, Satan by D.D Dumbo and Pool Party by Julia Jacklin.
The nominees for the International Work for Year include Justin Bieber twice for Sorry and Love Yourself, Justin Timberlake (Can't Stop the Feeling), Adele (Hello) and Duke Dumont (Ocean Drive).
Winners will be announced at the International Convention Centre Grand Ballroom in Sydney on 3 April (17).
