MPG Chairman Steve Levine said: “The Music Producers Guild Award brings those responsible for the creation of music loved around the world into the spotlight to give them the recognition they deserve. With a bigger venue and new categories, the MPG Awards 2014 is going to be the best yet and I would encourage everyone to make their nominations for one or all of the categories and then join us in February for a celebration of the very best of production talent.”
