Any music library who’s work is registered with a performing rights organisation (such as PRS for Music) is eligible to enter the awards. Any music library with non PRO affiliated works in their catalogue will not be eligible to enter the awards. You can find our full Rules for Entry above.
Entry fees for the Production Music Awards: £145 per entry. The ‘Best Newcomer’ category is still free to enter for any libraries submitting at least one paying entry.
Work may only be entered by the production music library (or sub–publisher) that owns the rights to the work.
Music submitted into Composition categories must have first been published by the library during the last three years. All music submitted into Sync categories must have been licensed into a production during the previous two years. You can find our full Rules for Entry on the link above.
The deadline for entries is the 28th July 2023. Nominations will be announced on the 7th September. The Production Music Awards Ceremony takes place on the 20th November.
Judges are carefully selected from across the broader music and sync industries. We’re proud of our distinguished jury of industry professionals, who each have experience and knowledge in the field of placing music to picture. Judges mark entries without any identifying information in order to maintain fairness and avoid any conflict of interest.
Absolutely! We pride ourselves on the fairness and transparency of our judging process. Each entry is presented blind to our judges, meaning they have no information on the work or publisher.
We also place a limit (two submissions) per category to offer each entrant the same opportunity irrespective of budget.
Unfortunately Composers are not eligible to enter the Production Music Awards.
