The Urban Music Awards Australia and New Zealand were established in 2006 as a means of celebrating hip hop, soul and R&B acts throughout the two countries. Two awards ceremonies were held, in 2006 and 2007.

The first show aired on Friday 21 July 2006 at Sydney’s Homebush State Sports Centre and was presented by Jazzy Jeff and Kurtis Blow.[1] The 2007 awards were held on Tuesday 14 August at Sydney's Milsons Point Luna Park.

Winners were decided by public votes from nominees selected by a panel of music industry figures (with the exception of the "Best DJ" and "Best Club Night" awards, which are purely public voted; and the "Best Producer" and "Urban Hero" awards, which were industry-voted only).
