New Zealand Music Award for Single of the Year

Single of the Year is a New Zealand Music Award that honours New Zealand music artists for outstanding singles. For the purpose of the award, a single is defined as a song released separately from an album, either for sale or as a music video serviced to New Zealand television.[1] The award was first awarded in 1973, following the Loxene Golden Disc award from 1965-1972.
