Nominations can now be made via the MPG website until 21 September. The 2012 Music Producers Guild Awards will be held at the Café de Paris, London, next February.
Mute Records founder Daniel Miller (pictured here with Alison Goldfrapp) was among the many recipients at the hugely successful 2011 event earlier this year.
With two new additions in the International Section, the MPGs now feature a total of 17 awards. Nominating a recording professional involves filling a simple online form at the website (link below). The nominations process is open to all, and there is no bar on self-nomination; indeed, this is actively encouraged by the MPG.
