The results are in! Thanks for taking part in the competition, I’m told the AudioGaming crew were quite overwhelmed by all the responses they received. Here’s what Amaury said:
Some quotes were just too funny so we decided to award two prizes. One for the best serious quote, one for the funniest. The two winners will get full post-production bundles.
Winner: Kevin Peters. Sculpt, control, create.
Runner up quotes: Everything indoors, The science of sounds, The future of sound design today
Winner: Andrea Proietti. Presets are for losers
Runner up quote: Unleash an audio storm like a Greek god of sound.
Congratulations Kevin and Andrea!
AudioGaming is about to celebrate five years of developing procedural audio plugin magic and would like to offer two DS readers a post-production bundle each — for free — through a simple competition.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Help them find a quote for the procedural audio plugin bundle
- A quote that could go on a box like the one below
- The quote needs to be ten words or less
- One entry per person, email your quote to contest[at]audiogaming[dot]net
Example: “Sculpt your audio in real-time”
The folks at AudioGaming will then choose two of the best quotes. This competition closes on 14 July 2014 at 00:00 GMT. Good luck!
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.
The original 1st February deadline for the Sonic Arts Award 2014 has been extended to 10th February 2014. This year’s competition, its second edition, is currently inviting entrants in the following four categories:
• Sound Art
• Sonic Research
• Digital Art
A prize of €1000.00 will be awarded to the winner in each category. There are also a couple of truly wonderful additional prizes that have recently been announced.
Among those sitting on the jury are Canadian composer and academic Barry Truax, German sound artist Christina Kubisch, and composer and musician David Grubbs. There is a submission fee (€25.00 for one work, plus a further €15.00 per additional work entered) and, as always, you are strongly advised to check out the entry requirements and details before entering. The awarding committee has put up an archive of last year’s winners and honourable mentions, so you can get a feel for the competition style, as well as some free downloads if you’re in need of inspiration.
Good luck, if you decide to enter!
Sonic Arts Award 2014 entry
BeautifulNow and The Sound Agency are accepting entries for the ‘The Most Beautiful Sound in the World’. Anything that encourages people to stop and think about the ecology of sound is a good thing in my book, which is one of the particular appeals of this competition. Simply record your sound, photograph it, and explain why you think it’s the most beautiful sound in the world, for your chance to win from a bunch of prizes including a Soundcloud Pro Membership.
Deadline for entries is December 16.
