Lorde took home her first official music award last night, as she won coveted songwriters trophy, the APRA Silver Scroll, along with her co-writer and producer Joel Little for their international hit song Royals. The annual award, which was presented at an impressive ceremony at Vector Arena in Auckland, is voted for by 10,000 New Zealand songwriters who are members of the Australasian Performing Rights Association, and is particularly prized by songwriters as a vote of confidence, and an indication of artistic integrity, from their peers.
