The Production Music Association this year launched the Mark Awards for Excellence in Production.

Named after the late Andy Mark — a prolific jingle-writer and the founder of Philadelphia Music Works, Broadcast Results Group, and the Canary Collection — the Mark Awards were established to recognize the best in production music tracks, as chosen by a judging panel drawn from working industry professionals.

As revealed at the second annual Production Music Conference, held in September at the DGA building in Los Angeles, a list of the winners follows below.
