Due to late entries into the NCEIA Dolphin Music Awards and download timeouts the deadline for entering songs and music videos has been extended till Friday the 16th of August to allow for the entry upload time required by the new entry portal on the NCEIA website. The NCEIA board has advised that, due to the nature of the new entry process, entrants should try and aim to upload their entries away from the peak hours in the evening time if possible.

To enter original songs and film clips, entrants must live in the (02) 66 telephone area code. They will need to have a photo and short bio ready as well as their music or video files prepared as per outlined on the website . If anyone needs help entering, they can go to the contact page to make their enquiries.

There is music industry recognition and fantastic prizes to be won. The Judges and Sponsors are also listed on the website along with past winners as well. These prestigious music awards have been showcasing original music since 1991 helping to promote and acknowledge the wealth of musical talent in the area.
