On 8th October, the entry window opened for the Music+Sound Awards 2013, an awards event that celebrates sound design and music in the creative industries.
Gaming, Film, TV and Advertising professionals are invited to become part of a music and sound celebration, which offers this incredible wealth of talent their moment in the limelight.
There will be awards for Best Original Composition, Best Sound Design and Best Sync across the entire audio and visual media industries. A thirty strong panel of industry authorities such as Duncan Smith and John Broomhall will judge the categories. With past winners including Best Original Composition in Gaming: James Bond 007 Blood Stone.
2013 follows on from the phenomenal success of the inaugural Music+Sound Awards. Once again the music and sound design industries have given their support to this event with sponsorship coming from heavyweights such as PRS for Music and Universal Music Publishing Group.
Tom Foster (now at Universal Music Publishing) says: “It is wonderful to be part of such a ground-breaking and unique event again. Last year we were blown away by the amount of talent in one room – the list of nominees was like a who’s who of the industry.” Nick Payne & Dan Neale, founders of the Music+Sound Awards say: “We were overwhelmed by the response to the first awards, this was in no small way down to the incredibly high standard of entries. This year’s body of work is already extremely strong and we are looking forward to giving the music and sound design industries another night to remember.”
A stunning line up of artists took to the stage at last year’s ceremony, which featured performances from the likes of The Noisettes, Newton Faulkner, The Phenomenal Handclap Band and a DJ set from Gary Numan and Ade Fenton. The Music+Sound Awards 2013 will yet again put the black ties and three course meals to one side and celebrate music and sound the way it should be done.
The Music+Sound Awards 2012 attracted worldwide interest, so much so that an international competition has also been launched for 2013. All entrants in the UK competition will automatically be entered into the International Music+Sound Awards free of charge.
