The Music+Sound Awards has this week announced its jury line-up for 2018’s competition. They will each play an intrinsic role in this now well-established, global, awards programme, that recognises and celebrates the indispensable role and outstanding contribution that both music and sound design play in advertising and the rest of the media.
The Awards champion the talents and skills of composers, sound designers, music supervisors and sync teams, creating a platform upon which they can stand, and for a brief moment each year, be truly recognised for what they have achieved.
Awards Managing Director Emma Maguire says: “Winning a Music+Sound Award in 2018 will once again be a true accolade of distinction, considering our highly distinguished jury panel of industry leaders. We sincerely thank each of them for their support and involvement.
“The Awards give entrants the chance to have their work heard by an international audience, to showcase to potential clients and to set themselves apart from the competition. We can’t wait to see what 2018 brings!”
