The Australasian Performing Right Association Awards of 1996 (generally known as APRA Awards) are a series of awards held in May 1996. The APRA Music Awards were presented by Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) and the Australasian Mechanical Copyright Owners Society (AMCOS).[1][2] APRA and AMCOS did not provide any awards in 1997, after the hiatus they resumed the annual ceremony in APRA Music Awards of 1998.[3]

Only one classical music award was available in 1996: Most Performed Contemporary Classical Composition.[4][5] APRA provided awards for "Best Television Theme", and "Best Film Score" in 1996.[6] APRA and AMCOS also sponsored the Australian Guild of Screen Composers (AGSC),[7] which provided their own awards ceremony, from 1996 to 2000, with categories for film and TV composers.[8]
