Catherine Marks, Imogen Heap, Marta Salogni and Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley were among the big winners at the 2018 MPG Awards, which took place at London’s Grosvenor House (March 1).

Marks, who won the Breakthrough Producer award back in 2016 and has since produced and worked on acclaimed albums for the likes of The Big Moon, The Amazons, Manchester Orchestra and St. Vincent, scooped the coveted UK Producer Of The Year Award, while Salogni, who mixed Bjork’s 2017 LP Utopia took home the Breakthrough Engineer Of The Year gong.

Heap, meanwhile, was honoured with the MPG Inspiration award, and Langer and Winstanley were jointly recognised with the Outstanding Contribution To UK Music award.

Elsewhere, Manon Grandjean received the Recording Engineer Of The Year award, Mark ‘Spike’ Stent won in the Mix Engineer Of The Year category and Jolyon Thomas emerged victorious as Breakthrough Producer Of The Year.

Garret ‘Jacknife’ Lee was named International Producer Of The Year and Matt Colton picked dup the Mastering Engineer Of The Year award.

Studio Of The Year went to Abbey Road, while the MPG Special Recognition award went to Colin Sanders.

Tony Platt, MPG Awards managing director, said of the event: "We are delighted to be celebrating 10 years of MPG Awards and it is especially encouraging to see the emergence of so much fresh new talent alongside the success of earlier breakthrough winners and the deserved recognition for more established talent. I think we have every right to be proud of the milestone this represents - long may it continue."
