Eligibility conditions for Full Membership of the MPG:
To qualify for Full Member status, you must have a credit for production, engineering, mixing, re-mixing or mastering on 6 commercially released tracks. This can either be 6 single tracks, 6 tracks on one album or EP, or 6 tracks across multiple albums or EPs. All recognized formats are acceptable, CD, vinyl, digital download, DVD and even cassette! These tracks must have been commercially available via traditional outlets, i.e. digital download from recognized online music retail sites, record shops, mail order. (Please note – non-recognized commercial sales directly by the artist at live venues do not qualify, similarly neither do downloads from personal sites such as Soundcloud and MySpace).
Alternatively, if you work in film or television and have six credits for production, engineering, or mixing music which has been commercially released in film, or broadcast on television, you’re also eligible for Full Membership.
You’ll need to validate your credits, and you can do this by supplying links to any of these websites:
Supplying an ISRC or additional links to the commercial availability of the tracks is much appreciated.
Alternatively you may send scans of bar-coded album artwork displaying your credits, or signed agreements.
