Ethan Johns, Paul Epworth, Tony Visconti and Rick Rubin are just some of the internationally acclaimed producers who have secured a coveted place on the Music Producers Guild 2014 Awards shortlist.

Albums by David Bowie, Adele, Laura Marling, The Foals and ZZ Top helped deliver nominations for an exceptionally diverse range of recording professionals whose work encompasses a wide variety of musical styles and genres. The list also includes notable new producers such as Disclosure and features James Blake's debut album Overgrown, which won this year's Mercury Music Prize.

Now in its sixth year, the Music Producers Guild Awards recognises the enormous contribution made by recording professionals to the success of the UK’s music industry. The winner of the Producer of the Year Award also receives a BRIT Award for Best Producer, and both awards will be presented at the Music Producers Guild’s Awards ceremony, which takes place on Thursday February 13th 2014 at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London.

MPG Chairman Steve Levine says: "An MPG Award is highly sought-after by recording professionals because it represents an endorsement by your peers. Whilst anyone can nominate, only full members of the MPG are allowed to vote for the shortlist and therefore the results are relevant to the creative value of our industry. Those who win an MPG Award are known to be at the top of their game as a recording professional.”

The shortlists for each of the MPG 2014 Awards categories (in no particular order) are as follows:
