The Music Producers Guild (MPG) (UK) promotes and represents all individuals in the music production and recording professions. It is a professional organisation that embodies collective and individual creative contributions to the production and recording of all genres of music and media related activities. As a guild, the organization has no political party affiliation.

The organisation presents the Music Producers Guild Awards annually. In 2008, the MPG and BPI coordinated their awards programs.[1] The MPG awards are sponsored by, amongst others, Shure and are intended to recognize the talent and ability of producers, engineers, mixers and remixers.[2] At the 2013 MPG awards, George Martin received 'The Outstanding Contribution to UK Music' award.[3]

Conceived and supported by producers and engineers who are passionate about all aspects of creating and recording music, it provides a community to share collective experiences and collaborate with other like-minded people.

Membership is open to all producers, engineers, mixers, re-mixers, programmers, sound designers, mastering engineers, students, enthusiasts – everyone who shares delight in and dedication to the creation of music and audio.

MPG members include Paul Epworth, Bernard Butler, Mike Crossey, Jake Gosling and Tommy D.
