“The MPG has worked tirelessly to raise the status of the UK’s highly skilled recording professionals and our Awards, which over 10 years have built up an integrity respected throughout the production community, are hugely important in championing their creativity and talent,” says Tony Platt, Managing Director of MPG Awards. “Submissions have increased every year, as have the number of musical genres represented, but there is always room for more. The MPG would like to encourage as many people as possible to take part – both in the submissions process and as voting Full Members – so that we have a truly diverse range of recording professionals in with a chance of winning.”
The MPG Awards 2019 will take place February 28th 2019 at Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London with Shawn Keaveny returning as host by popular demand.
