Phonographic Performance Company of Australia

The Phonographic Performance Company of Australia (PPCA) is a national, non-government, non-profit organisation that represents the interest of record companies and Australian recording artists.[1]

The PPCA is a partner organisation supporting Sounds Australia, an initiative established in 2009 to promote and showcase Australian music overseas. Other partners include the Australian Government, APRA AMCOS and various state organisations.[2]

In 2019, APRA AMCOS and PPCA created OneMusic Australia, a joint initiative to streamline the process of music licensing in Australia.[3]

During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia in March 2020, the PPCA established a scheme whereby PPCA-registered artists could apply for a one-off cash advance of up to $10,000 to help them through the loss of income brought about by the cancellation of live music during the pandemic.[4]
