Australian Recording Industry Association Logo.png

The Australian Recording Industry Association (commonly known as ARIA) is a trade group representing the Australian recording industry which was established in 1983 by six major record companies, EMI, Festival, CBS, RCA, WEA and Universal replacing the Association of Australian Record Manufacturers (AARM) which was formed in 1956. It oversees the collection, administration and distribution of music licenses and royalties.

ARIA Music Awards

The Wiggles have been nominated at the ARIA Music Awards several times for the category of Best Children's Album. Below is a list of every year they were nominated (including years they did not win), with the winner at the top of the list in bold. From 1995 to 1998, it was named Best Australian Children's Release.

In 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004, Hi-5 won Best Children's Album, in 2013 & 2018, Justine Clarke won Best Children's Album, in 2015, Sam Moran won Best Children's Album, and finally, in 2019, Dan Sultan won Best Children's Album. Note that even though The Wiggles collaborated with Jimmy Barnes on Och Aye the G'Nu!, which won in 2017, the ARIA Awards website lists Jimmy Barnes as the only nominee for the album. 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1997, & 1999 are the only years that The Wiggles were never nominated, to date.
