This year’s nominees are Strongroom assistant engineer Tom Bailey, Hook End Manor's Mark Collins, studio design and disc-cutting specialist Sean Davies, Dean St. Studios manager Jasmin Lee, former Sony staffer and now Dune Music communications man Adam Sieff, and Metropolis Studios’ Annika Walsh.

Everyone is entitled to vote and can do so at But there are only seven more days to cast your vote as the ballot will close on 21 December.

MPG Chairman Steve Levine tells PSNE: “The Unsung Hero award is a fantastic way of honouring those people who work tirelessly for our industry but don’t necessarily get the recognition they deserve. With just one week left to vote I would urge everyone to take part by expressing their vote from what is an outstanding list of nominees. I would also like to remind everyone that tickets for the awards are now on sale and if you want to be there on the night please make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.”
