The finalists for the 2019 Siren Awards have been announced, along with the host for this year’s ceremony.

The winner will be revealed at a ceremony MC’d by Triple M Sydney Breakfast host and standup comic Lawrence ‘Moonman’ Mooney.
The 2019 Siren Awards are set to be held on May 9 at The Rawson in Sydney.
Last year’s Gold Siren was won by Ray Ali and Carlo Mazzarella from Clemenger BBDO, and the duo are in the running again this year.
“This is the 14th year of the Siren Awards and once again the quality of entries has been outstanding,” said Commercial Radio Australia CEO Joan Warner.
