The Music Week Awards are the UK’s only music awards that recognize labels, publishing, live, retail, A&R, radio, marketing and public relations.
The 2022 Music Week Awards application process is your opportunity to showcase your best work from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021 and showcase your accomplishments and those of your company to the industry.
This year’s edition of the ceremony was our biggest Music Week award, as the industry returned for the first in-person event since 2019. BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo hosted for the first time then that the music industry celebrated his many accomplishments.
Big winners in 2021 included Polydor, which retained the Record Company category; Warner Records, which won the A&R award; UMPG, who was named Editor of the Year; Sony Music in the Music and Brand Partnership category; and Tap Music, which triumphed as Manager Of The Year.
With huge artist campaigns in 2021, the next edition of the ceremony is already shaping up to be a fascinating battle across the 24 contested categories. There’s also The Strat, our special award for an icon of the music industry – Kanya King received the award this year.
While the live music categories are back for 2022 following the return of concerts, the Festival of the Year award is on hold for another year due to the disruption of this sector in 2021.
