UK: To encourage the widest variety and quality of submissions, this Music Week Awards category has a new closing date of February 12. Drawing on the entries of UK-based professionals and projects undertaken and released during 2009, the Music Week Awards 2010 will take place at the London Hilton Park Lane on April 15.
Although general submission has now closed, the deadline for one category - Live Production Team of the Year - has been extended to achieve a more complete reflection of the skill-set and achievements of the modern live production industry.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for PSNE-reading live sound professionals to gain recognition for themselves and their colleagues," says PSNE editor Dave Robinson. "There have been countless examples of formidable live production achievements in the pages of PSNE over the last year, and that's only part of what's going on out there. The Music Week Awards is a great forum by which to promote these achievements amongst your peers, so what are you waiting for?"
These sentiments are echoed by Music Week editor Paul Williams, who encourages "all PSNE readers who feel they have a strong claim to the title of Live Production Team of the Year to make that submission now!"
Entry criteria are straightforward: the category is open to a professional audio team which has "excelled in the live environment on a project or number of projects by working together and providing expertise, infrastructure, equipment and technical support, made evident in productivity, motivation, repeat business and audience satisfaction."
The registration system is now closed, so would-be entrants should contact Michelle Hacker (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
