The MPG aims to recognise tomorrow’s greats as well as more established industry players and greatly encourages nominations from music industry professionals as well as the general public. Anyone can submit a name against any of the 14 award categories and have a say on who they think deserves to win one of these acclaimed accolades. (the remaining Awards are in the gift of the MPG)
A few changes this year:
We have a new website from Awards Force for submitting that will make nominating a whole lot easier.
There is a change from ‘Dolby Atmos Mix of The Year’ award to ‘Dolby Atmos Mixer Of the Year’ to recognise the ongoing excellence of Mixers with a body of work in this maturing field.
In a change to the criteria this year for “Studio of The Year” any studio that has won in the last 3 years will be deemed ineligible. Ineligible studios for 2024 are: 2023 winner RAK Studios. 2022 winner Abbey Road Studios, 2021 Winner Parr Street Studios.
DON’T FORGET NOMINATIONS ARE FREE AND COMPLETELY OPEN TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO MAKE A SUBMISSION.
Previous MPG Award winners include Inflo, Kid Harpoon, Hannah Peel, Fiona Cruickshank, Bob Clearmountain, Dan Carey, Dani Bennett Spragg, Skepta, Youth, Paul Epworth, FKA Twigs, Roni Size, Marta Salogni and Joan Armatrading.Nominations are the first stage in the MPG’s thorough Awards process. Once names are submitted and checked as eligible against each Award criterion, MPG Full Members vote to create a shortlist, which is presented to the judging panel and announced to the press and public in April. Winners are then announced at the ceremony in June.
UK music producers, engineers, mixers and mastering engineers have proved their worth over decades, inspiring many others around the world to follow their dreams to become the talent of the future. Read more about The MPG Awards HERE.
