For a second year, the international music and sound communities will join forces to stage this leading-edge competition. Anyone from the worlds of advertising, film, TV or gaming involved in the production process on a project they feel has been significantly enhanced by the music or sound, are invited to submit their work and become part of this prestigious programme’s appreciation of the essential part music and sound design play in the world of the media.

The awards will be building on the colossal success of previous competitions and this year’s successful entrants will join the ranks of such International Music+Sound Awards winners as ‘The Hunger Games’ trailer (Pusher, composers: Stefania Ziliotto & Lorenzo Montana), ‘Downton Abbey’ (Carnival Films & Television Limited, Hackenbacker) and the movies ‘Brave’ (Cutting Edge Group, composer: Patrick Doyle) and ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ (Imagem Creative Services, Music supervisor: Randall Poster).

Jury member, Brian Monaco, EVP at Sony/ATV Music Publishing says, “It's really exciting to be part of the International Music and Sound Awards again this year. Providing a mark of excellence for the crafts of music and sound design is something that is long overdue and a dedicated Awards ceremony like this will once again help reward those that excel in these fields."

Along with Brian Monaco, the jury contains industry figureheads such as Jeanette Perez (VP of Music for Advertising, Sony Music, NY), Keith D’Arcy (Creative Licensing, Songs Music Publishing, NY) and Simon Greenaway (ASCAP).

Jury Member, Paul Greco, Director of Music & Radio, JWT, New York, says, "I'm happy to be a part of the International Music & Sound Awards once again this year. Music and sound design has become an integral component of communication in advertising. It often is the element that forms a deep connection with the consumer and can raise the level of the work from good to great, from forgettable to memorable. Advertisers are now more aware of music and sound's effectiveness and want to capitalize on its benefits. It's a very exciting time to be in this field."

The entry window will close on 31st March 2014. More details and competition rules can be found on the awards site www.masawards.com/international.

Boilerplate

The International Music+Sound Awards recognise and celebrate the indispensable role and outstanding contribution that music and sound design play in the world of visual and audio media. They were set up to establish the criteria and standard for international excellence in music and sound in this field.

In addition to a 2014 UK ceremony, our international programme will culminate in a celebration on the beach in Cannes next June.

Aimed at professionals working in advertising, film, television (branding 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.

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, branding and title sequence, feature films, television programmes and computer games.

Each of these areas will be judged for: best original composition, best sound design and best synch/use of existing music.
