The 2013 APRA Silver Scroll Awards were held on Tuesday 15 October 2013 at Vector Arena in Auckland, celebrating excellence in New Zealand songwriting. This is the first year the awards were held at Vector Arena, moving from its previous location of the Auckland Town Hall to a bigger arena to accommodate more of APRA's 8000 New Zealand members.[1]

The Silver Scroll award was presented to Ella Yelich-O'Connor and Joel Little for "Royals" by Lorde, and singer-songwriter Dave Dobbyn was inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame. The Most Performed Work Overseas went to Brooke Fraser and Scott Ligertwood for “Something in the Water”, ending the 13-year run of Neil Finn's Crowded House song "Don't Dream It's Over". Brenda Makamoeafi and Hassanah Iroegbu of 1990s hip hop duo Sisters Underground reunited to perform their 1994 hit "In the Neighbourhood".[2]
