The SAE Sounddesign contest has just been announced. Contestants will be asked to create the audio (foley, sound design, atmosphere, no music) for a short monster animation, and the first through third place winners will take home a share of over 5500€ worth of prizes from companies like Rode, Boom Library, iZotope, Avid, SoundBits, Sugar Bytes, Fluid Audio, and Presonus.
The contest is open to all, and will be judged by Thomas Johnson, Axel Rorbach and Saro Sahihi. Boom Library has also offered a few sounds from their high-quality construction kits for use in the contest (though their use is optional).
The SAE Institute offers education in a number of media production fields. Submissions for the SAE Sounddesign contest will be accepted until June 23rd, 2014. For more information, see the SAE website.
