25.11.2021: UK Music has revealed the shortlist for UK Music’s Outstanding MAP Graduate Award 2021.

The Outstanding MAP Graduate Awards (OMGs) are given to the most dynamic, innovative and ground-breaking students to come through a Music Academic Partnership (MAP) institute.

This is the fifth year the awards have taken place. It took a break last year during the pandemic but returns for 2021.

This year the overall Winner, Runners-Up and Special Mentions will be announced at the awards ceremony that will take place on Thursday December 9 at the MAP member London College of Creative Media (LCCM)’s The Music Box, followed by a celebration at UK Music member AIM’s Christmas Party.

MAP institutions have the opportunity to nominate up to two graduates each for their outstanding contribution to the music industry.

This could be for their fantastic efforts in research, recording, performance, general musical life of the institution, wider musical life of the area, business success or community work, or anything that shows they have gone above and beyond their course requirements.

The nominations are judged by industry professionals and looks at their university work, their career following graduation and potential to make an impact in the future.

The full list of nominees can be found here.

UK Music Director of Education and Skills Dr Oliver Morris said:

“Our Music Academic Partnership partners have a real wealth of talented graduates working right across the music industry.

“The OMGs offer us an opportunity to highlight some outstanding individuals and celebrate their achievements.

“The awards also shine a light on the excellent work being done by educationalists who are nurturing and training the music industry of the future.

“This is our fifth year of awards and I love the fact many of these young professionals are not only super-talented but also keen to pass on their experience and insight to others.

“Many nominees from previous years have attended careers days and panels with us and there’ll be lots of opportunities next year for more of this.”
