Entries for the Music Week Awards 2019 close in less than a week – be sure not to miss out on your chance to be a part of the biggest and best ever edition of the music industry’s favourite night of the year.
The final deadline for submissions is midnight on Wednesday, January 16. We repeat: don’t miss your opportunity to highlight your achievements to the entire industry – you’ve got to be in it to win it!
Taking place on May 9 in a brand new venue, London’s Battersea Evolution, this year’s show is set to reap the benefits of an increased capacity and a more versatile room.
Earlier this week, we unveiled YouTube Music as our partner for the event, which rewards outstanding achievements from across the music business, from A&R and live, to marketing, press, management, retail and beyond.
Last year’s ceremony attracted a host of the biggest execs and artists in the biz, from Dua Lipa and BBC Radio 1/1Xtra/Asian Network controller Ben Cooper to Annie Mac, Glastonbury's Emily Eavis and UTA's super-agent Neil Warnock.
Highlights on the night ran the gamut from Warner Music Group CEO, recorded music Max Lousada collecting The Strat – the special award that recognises an industry icon and pioneer – to Ed Sheeran’s manager Stuart Camp, of Grumpy Old Management, being named Manager Of The Year. Elsewhere, Atlantic, Polydor, Sony/ATV, Spotify and Glastonbury were among the big winners.
