Nominations for the 2011 Music Producers Guild (MPG) Awards – to be held on 10 February - are now officially open via the dedicated event website (link below).

Once again, the MPG is collaborating with the BRITS to present the winner of its Producer of the Year category with a BRIT Award for Best Producer. Last year’s glamorous and joyful evening at the Café de Paris saw Paul Epworth receive the BRIT from Florence Welch (pictured) as Muse, Jamie T and 300 others looked on. Florence went on to win the ‘big BRIT prize’ – album of the year for Lungs – the following week.

MPG chairman Steve Levine commented: “There is no doubt that the vast majority of the music loving public has no idea of the amount of work that goes into recording a successful album. So many talented people play a part, from producers and engineers, to mix and mastering engineers and recording studios. It is only natural that artists and songwriters should be applauded but we think it is also important that the accolades are shared with the people who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make great records.

“We want as many people as possible to be part of these Awards, so please ensure that you get online and make your nominations.”

Award categories are all listed on the website. Nominating a worthwhile recording professional involves filling in a very simple online form. Anyone and everyone can be part of this process as the nominations are open to all. There is also no bar on self-nomination: in fact, the MPG is actively encouraging producers and engineers to do this.

Sponsorship opportunities for the event are still available and any company that would like be part of the Awards should contact Sadie Groom at Bubble & Squeak,
