RPS Executive Director Rosemary Johnson says: 

“The RPS Music Awards are the awards for outstanding live music making in the UK and the nominations we receive not only provide exhilarating food for thought for our juries, but each year provide a valuable, sometimes surprising, snapshot of the astounding range of musical activity across the country. Now is your chance to add your voice and make the case for your favourites of 2014.  Every nomination is considered, and every suggestion – whether for a headline-grabbing blockbuster or small, but perfectly hewn event, is judged against the Society’s core principles of encouraging creativity, excellence and understanding of music."
With 13 categories, the RPS Music Awards offer the broadest spectrum of recognition for excellence both in and away from the concert hall. Independent juries consider every nomination, with selected shortlists in each category announced in April 2015. The presentation of the Awards will be held at The Brewery on Tuesday 5 May 2015.

Nominations remain open until midday on Monday 19 January 2015.
