With little time to go before the entry window closes for The Music+Sound Awards 2014, advertising professionals are invited to submit their work by midnight (GMT) on the 30th November 2013 and become part of a music and sound celebration, which offers this incredible wealth of talent their moment in the spotlight.
In addition to awards for Best Original Composition, Best Sound Design and Best Sync, there will be three new advertising categories – Agency of the Year, Use of Production Music in Advertising and Best Brand and Band. Anyone who has worked in any capacity on a project they feel has been significantly enhanced by the music or sound is eligible to enter.
2014 follows on from the phenomenal success of previous years with, once again, the music and sound design industries coming together and giving their support to put on this event with sponsorship coming from heavyweights such as PRS for Music and Universal Music Publishing Group.
Awards co-founder, Dan Neale comments, “Every year there are so many great pieces of work entered that are examples of why the Music+Sound Awards should exist. It really is an honour to be able to shine a light on the professionals involved in bringing these concepts to life, and making them connect with people.” He continues, “Each year the response gets bigger, as more people hear about us - and this time is no exception. We are so pleased that people out there get what this is about, and support it by entering their work."
A fifty strong panel of industry authorities such as Nils Leonard (Chief Creative Officer, Grey London), composer David Arnold (composer, ‘Quantum of Solace’, ‘Casino Royale’) and Ayla Owen (Head of Music, BBH London) are poised, ready to judge the categories.
Jury member, Rich Robinson, VP of Sync, UK & Europe at Parlophone WMG says, “It’s great to be involved with MASA and see the creativity and specialisation involved in music and communication recognized in its own right.” He goes on to say, “I think everyone instinctively understands music plays a fundamental part but it’s great to have that quantified and measured as its own individual discipline.”
The entry window closes on 30th November 2013 and entry details and competition rules can be found on the awards site, www.masawards.com. £5 from every entry will be donated to the Awards’ charity partner, Nordoff Robbins, to help support the incredible work they do.
Nominees for the third Music+Sound Awards will be announced at the beginning of February 2014, and winning entries will be honoured and showcased at a ceremony on 27th February 2014, in London.
The global branch of the programme, The International Music+Sound Awards, is open for entries worldwide simultaneously, with all submissions into the UK competition automatically being entered, free of charge. This competition’s entry window closes 31st March 2014.
