Announcing the Tony Pool Inspiration Award 2021 – Nominations Now Open!


The MPA is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the Tony Pool Inspiration Award 2021!
The Award recognises and celebrates the achievements of those who have shown an outstanding contribution to the administrative areas of the music publishing industry.

The award is in memory of the late Tony Pool who sadly passed away in 2016. Tony spent most of his working life with Boosey & Hawkes, eventually becoming Head of Business Affairs.
He was a firm advocate of copyright reform and made a significant contribution to political discussions in the UK and Europe. He also paved the way for the creation of British Music Rights.

As Tony was a fierce supporter of the “engine room” teams that keep publishers going, the MPA feels that this award is a fitting way to honour his legacy.
