The deadline for entries to the inaugural International Music+Sound Awards is less than 1 week away, on 31 March.
An overwhelming response so far from supervisors, composers, sound studios, ad agencies, game developers, production companies and many more mean that the first year of this global event will put a marker in the ground. Music and sound are vital components in any production, and the International Music+Sound Awards are the first global music and sound celebration, which offers this incredible wealth of talent their moment in the limelight for the first time on a global stage.
Film, Advertising, TV and Gaming professionals worldwide are invited to enter their work before the entry deadline.
Awards will be given for Best Original Composition, Best Sound Design and Best Use of Existing Music across the entire audio and visual media industries. A fifty strong (and growing) panel of industry authorities including Klaus Badelt (composer, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’), Roc Chen (composer, ‘Chinese Zodiac’), Mary Ramos (Music Supervisor, ‘Kill Bill Vol.2’), Jessica Dieraurer (Executive Producer of Music and Creative Content @ Y&R, New York), Tim Mellors (Chief Creative Head @ Grey Group Worldwide) and Dave Pettigrew (SVP, Head of Advertising and Games @ Warner Chappell, New York) will judge the categories.
In celebration of all the work that is shortlisted and / or goes on to be awarded for creative excellence with a Music+Sound Award, the organisers will be hosting a party on Plage Goeland beach in Cannes on the 21st June 2013, on the fringe of the Festival of Creativity. “In the UK our event has become known as THE networking night for music and sound in the media, as well as a brilliant party”, explains Dan Neale (co-founder). “In Cannes we want MAS International to be the night that all attending creatives, supervisors, sync reps, composers and sound designers get together and celebrate the great work they do every day.”
The International Music+Sound Awards follow on from the phenomenal success of the UK Music+Sound Awards, which, due to overwhelming global interest has now become an international programme.
Tom Foster (Head of Television, Film and Advertising @ Universal Music Publishing, London) says: “It is wonderful to be part of such a ground-breaking and unique event again. Last year we were blown away by the amount of talent in one room – the list of nominees was like a who’s who of the industry.”
Nick Payne (co-founder) says: “The International Music and Sound Awards is the first of its kind. A giant melting pot for the incredible talent that provides Music and Sound Design to the Media Industries on a global scale.” He goes on to add, “the calibre of our jury illustrates just how important the entire media industry think our event is.”
