MAP institutions have the opportunity to nominate one graduate each for their outstanding contribution to music. This could be in (but not limited to) any of the following areas: research, recording, performance, general musical life of the institution, wider musical life of the city / area, business success or their community work. The nominations are judged by UK Music’s Skills Programme Board and look at their university career, their career following graduation and potential to make an impact in the future. This is an annual award to identify and recognise some of the most dynamic and successful individuals to come through MAP institutions.
The award aims to celebrate the outstanding contribution of MAP graduates and also MAP institutions to music. A certificate of achievement recognising the individual's nomination along with cash prizes and gig tickets will be won.
