Gold Coast singer-songwriter Amy Shark might make it third-time lucky after scoring another Song of the Year nomination at the nation's annual APRA Music Awards.
Shark, 32, is among the nominees named on Wednesday for the top gong with her hit I Said Hi, off the back of a stellar awards season for her album Love Monster.
But there's some stiff competition in the form of last year's winner and Aussie music legend Paul Kelly, who is again in the running for his latest hit One I Love.
The pair joins artists Mojo Juju, Angie McMahon and Ainslie Willis vying for the top-tune category.
Young Australian of the Year Danzal Baker, who performs as Baker Boy, is among the nominees for Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year. It's a prize also contested by Dean Lewis, Georgia Flip (who goes by G Flip), Holly Rankin (who performs as Jack River), and Tash Sultana.
Sarah Aarons has four APRA award nominations, Shark and Baker each have three.
Sheppard, PNAU, Vance Joy, Morgan Evans, Angus & Julia Stone, Kim Churchill, The Rubens and Gang of Youths are also on the long list of nominees.
Awards are presented in the genres of country, blues and roots, dance, rock, pop, urban and international work of the year, and Most Played Australian Work.
Winners will be announced in Melbourne on April 30.
