Production Music awards on a table waiting to be awarded

The best and brightest creative talents in the music industry came out in force this evening to attend this year’s Production Music Awards. Hosted by MCPS Production Music, the awards celebrated the most important and influential creators within the production music industry.

Music used in the latest advertising campaigns, films and television programmes were judged by a panel of thirty experts from across the industry who assessed entries based on composition, originality, production quality, and fit to moving image. Twelve composition winners and six sync winners were chosen across 18 categories.

From rock, to ambient, world, hip-hop and folk, to electronic, pop and jazz, the Production Music Awards champion a wide range of genres and cover a cross-section of media platforms including, online viral ad campaigns, drama and factual television, and feature film.


The level of excellence in this year’s submissions just goes to show that the production music industry continues to grow in both quality and confidence. With many of the world’s largest production music libraries in attendance, the standard of competition was incredibly high. Congratulations to everyone nominated.

Jane Dyball, Chief Executive, MCPS
