The Oshawa Music Awards (OMAs) is an annual award show that began in 2018. The OMAs recognizes the influence and achievements of local music creators, businesses, and music supporters that help to grow the music scene in Durham Region, Canada, and globally.

This year, the OMAs award show will celebrate its fifth anniversary with an in-person event on September 29, 2022 together with a livestream element for the global online audiences. The Awards will honour artists across multiple categories—including Songwriter of the Year, Album of the Year, Emerging Artist or Band of the Year, Durham Song of the Year, and Music Teacher of the Year.

Members of the public are invited to vote for their favourite choice in all categories. Public voting will close on August 9, 2022.
