Music Week Awards 2012

So the noms are out for Music Week’s annual music industry awards bash, covering labels, publishing, retail, radio, venues and management. Taking place this year at The Brewery on 26 Apr, a panel of 300 odd industry types will now vote for overall winners from these shortlists, though some categories will be picked by members of specific trade bodies or specialist groups.
