Music+Sound Awards 2019 Unveils Finalists
The finalists have been announced for the 8th annual global Music+Sound Awards, the world’s top honour for composers, sound designers, music supervisors and sync teams in film, TV and advertising. 

It was a record year for entrants, with over 500 projects submitted from across the globe for consideration in 31 categories spanning original composition, sound design, sync, re-records and production music in advertising, film and television. 

“The Music+Sound Awards were established to recognise and celebrate the essential role that both music and sound design play in the media. We’re here to champion the talent and skill of composers, sound designers, music supervisors and sync teams, creating an opportunity for them to be truly acknowledged for what they have achieved,” said Emma Maguire, awards’ director. “Now in their 8th year, the enthusiasm and support of The Music+Sound Awards’ community continues to overwhelm us. This year was extremely competitive, with a record number of entries – many from familiar faces but many also from exciting newcomers. We love that our community is growing globally so much, year on year. A very well deserved congratulations and good luck to all the 2019 finalists!”

Finalists were chosen by a panel of worldwide industry professionals including Rebecca Williams, head of film at Saatchi & Saatchi London; Till Diestel, managing creative director at BBDO Berlin; Bas Korsten, creative partner at JWT Amsterdam; Michael Knox, CCO at Grey Hong Kong; Luis Almau, head of music production at Soundtree Music London; Ben Leeves, senior sound engineer at Jungles Studios London; and Josh Rabinowitz, music consultant at Brooklyn Music Experience New York. The full panel can be seen here.

Winners of 2019’s Awards will be announced on Tuesday 16th July, 4pm (GMT), via The Music+Sound Awards’ Twitter feed, @MASAwards.
