However at the time of writing the GDC Vault has not updated with audio/video of the event so hopefully this post will have a more timely release around the same time as GDC Vault.

The Hybrid Animal Sound Design Competition

The Hybrid Animal Sound Design Competition

No matter how deep your interest in animal husbandry may be, you’re probably never going to figure out what the spawn of a camel and a mollusk might sound like. Or will you? Interested sound designers still have a little more than a week left to enter the Hybrid Animal Sound Design Competition, where the creation from scratch of a brand new animal call could net a share of $6,000 worth of prizes from Pro Sound Effects, Avid, iZotope, Rode, and Ric Viers. The deadline for entries is Tuesday, April 8th. Check out the rules, restrictions, and other details over at the Pro Sound Effects Blog.
