Nominations for 2018's MPG (Music Producers Guild) Awards will close a week later than scheduled, with an amended deadline of midnight (23:59) on Thursday, September 7.
Taking place on March 1 2018 at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, and presented by BBC Radio 6Music's Shaun Keaveny, organisers have promised ‘the biggest and glitziest’ bash yet for the awards' 10th anniversary event.
A statement on the MPG website reads:
We appreciate that many of you have uploaded submissions for the MPG Awards 2018. However, quite a few have told us they had been caught out by our decision to run the submissions period in August (earlier than previous years). It would seem that they hadn’t prepared their submissions or had been unable to complete them whilst on holiday or out of the country.
So…we’re allowing another 7 days to make submissions.
We know that you’ll appreciate that we want to make sure that everyone has a chance to submit nominations for all of their respected and talented producers, engineers and mixers, so please bear with us while we make these last minute arrangements.
The Guild has emphasised that you don't need to be a member of the organisation to apply.
Recording professionals and studio owners who would like to be considered are encouraged to get online and submit their own names, rather than relying on other people to do it for them. Upload your nominations on the MPG website here.
“Winning an award shows that you have the respect of your peers because ultimately they are the people who have voted for you,” MPG MD Tony Platt said. “But before that can happen, you must submit your own name or the name of someone you think is worthy of consideration in a particular category.”
