The Music+Sound Awards are the world’s first and only awards programme to recognise and celebrate the indispensable role and outstanding contribution that music and sound design play in the world of visual media. Aimed at professionals working in advertising, film, television (composition and programming) and gaming, the awards are open to anyone who is or has been involved in the creation, composition, sourcing, licensing, briefing and / or production of music and sound design for any visual media broadcast or released in the UK.
We welcome everybody involved in production to celebrate the role of music and sound design within their finished work. One could argue that music and sound make up at least 50% of the overwhelming majority of visual media, yet there just isn’t enough recognition for it, until now. Can you imagine a hamlet cigar commercial without Bach’s Air on a G String, a Film or TV programme without its score or a video game without sound effects? The music and sound design industry is thriving in all areas of the media and its incredible talent deserves celebration and recognition for what it achieves.
The awards categories have been created to include the widest possible use of music and sound in visual media. They invite entries from television and cinema commercials, non-broadcast or viral advertising, composition and title sequences, feature films, television programmes and video games. Each of these areas will be judged for: best original composition, best sound design and best sync/use of existing music.
