There is now just one week left to nominate your Rising Star for this year’s Pro Sound Awards.
The Rising Star Award, which is chosen every year by the team at our sister publication Audio Media International, is one of the highlights of the annual event, which will take place at London's Steel Yard for the first time this year on Thursday, September 28 after four years at Ministry of Sound.
Therefore, we're looking to hear from as many of the industry's top up-and-comers – and potential contenders for the prestigious prize – as possible over the next seven days.
So if you're a young audio professional that can demonstrate you have a bright future ahead of you, or if you know of one that you'd like to nominate for the Award, then we want to hear from you.
Later this summer, AMI will begin publishing a series of Q&A profile articles on the nominees that catch our eye before revealing the final shortlist as the event approaches.
The overall winner will be announced live on stage at the Pro Sound Awards ceremony in September.
Anyone aged 30 or under or with two years or less of industry experience currently working within the world of pro audio – engineers, producers, technicians, sound designers etc. – is eligible for inclusion. Entries can either come from somebody wishing to nominate a colleague, apprentice or assistant, or from the individuals themselves.
So if you think you deserve to be included, or if you know someone who does, send a short 'pitch' to AMI senior staff writer Colby Ramsey (firstname.lastname@example.org) explaining why you, or the person you have in mind, should be considered. Please provide as much information as possible on the person's recent projects and past achievements, as this will increase their chances of being selected.
The deadline for nominations is Friday, August 4 2017.
For more information on the Pro Sound Awards, including the full list of categories, see the event website below.
Tickets are available for just £58 (plus VAT), and can also be purchased through the Awards site.
