Catherine Marks took home the top accolade of Producer Of The Year for her work on the Grammy Award winning boygenius album, The Record.

Album Of The Year was awarded to Ezra Collective for Where I’m Meant To Be, produced by Ezra Collective and Riccardo Damian, who also engineered. It was mixed by Eric Lau and Mastered by Stuart Hawkes.

Everything But The Girl (Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt) took home Self-Producing Artist for their album Fuse, which came out on Buzzin’ Fly in April.

This year’s Rising Star was Amy Sergeant, a producer, writer and mixer who specialises in indie-folk and alt-pop. She has worked with the likes of Florence & The Machine, Wolf Alice and The Vamps.

Kirsty Whalley took home multiple awards, winning Dolby Atmos Mixer of The Year and Original Score Recording of the Year, for her work on the Glass Onion: a Knives Out Mystery soundtrack alongside composer and producer, Nathan Johnson and engineer and mixer, Peter Cobbin.

Singer, producer, songwriter, dancer and actor FKA twigs was presented with the gifted, PPL Present The MPG Award For Outstanding Contribution To UK Music. Twigs commented on her win: “I’m really honoured to be receiving the award for outstanding contribution to UK music. It means so much to me because the MPG awards are truly industry facing and acknowledge the talented people who are still chained to the desk past midnight.

"The fact that for over a decade I have been able to write and produce my own music and still take part in all the glitz and glamour is truly a testament not only to my dedication to my art but also to all of the amazing collaborators I have worked with and learnt from over the past decade. This award is for all of us.”

Another notable recipient was the producer, engineer and mixer, Alan Moulder who was awarded the gifted MPG Icon Award. He was presented his award by Catherine Marks.
