Three new advertising categories have been added to 2014 Music+Sound Awards, in addition to the ‘Best Sound Design’, ‘Best Original Composition’ and ‘Best Sync / Use of Existing Music’ awards.
AGENCY OF THE YEAR
To be awarded to the advertising agency that has shown consistent creative excellence in its use of music and sound during the past 12 months.
USE OF PRODUCTION MUSIC IN ADVERTISING
For the best use of production music in an advertising campaign for any medium.
BEST BRAND AND BAND PARTNERSHIP
For recognising and successfully exploiting the synergy between a brand and a band or artist to enhance and better communicate an advertising campaign.
Jury member, Nils Leonard, Chief Creative Officer at Grey London, has this to say, “Music & Sound have never played such a vital role, not just in communications but also in culture. As a result the Music & Sound awards have grown into a truly important event in the creative calendar.” He adds, “The Music & Sound awards are about rewarding the talent that really understand this very special discipline, and I’m chuffed as a juror to be able to hold aloft the people pushing us all forwards.”
The entry window will close 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 Music+Sound 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.
