Music Week Awards 2018: Seven days left to enter

Attention: you have just one week left if you want to be part of the biggest and best awards show in the music business.

Entries have been flooding in from all sections of the music business since they opened back in December. But if you want to be in there competing with the best in the biz, time is fast running out. All nominations for the Music Week Awards 2018 must be made via the official website,, by the deadline of midnight on Friday, January 12. The website contains comprehensive details of how to apply, including category criteria.

Bookings are also now open for the event, which takes place on April 26 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. The 2017 Music Week Awards was a record breaking event with an unprecedented number of entries and a sell out room on the night with more than 1,200 guests.

The awards are peer-voted and judged by panels of specialist judges. As ever, labels will be competing in some big categories, including Artist Marketing Campaign, Catalogue Marketing Campaign, Music & Brand Partnership, Sales Team Of The Year, Promotions Team Of the Year, Record Company and Independent Record Company, while independent and major publishers will be up against each other for Publisher Of The Year.

New for 2018 is the addition of the Accountancy Firm Of The Year award, which is open to any firm with clients in the B2B music industry. The Law Firm Of the Year award, introduced in 2017, will also return while all the regular awards are back, including the A&R Award, Label/Artist Services Company, Festival Of The Year, Ticketing Company, Live Music Agent, Live Music Promoter, Music Retailer/Streaming Company, Grassroots Venue, Manager Of The Year, Radio Show, Radio Station, Independent Music Retailer and PR Campaign.

Each year, The Strat is also bestowed upon a winner by the Music Week team for a lifetime of achievement across the industry. Last year it went to First Access Entertainment founder and CEO Sarah Stennett.
