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!
