API AWARDS 2012: Finalists revealed!

The votes are in and the waiting is finally over, as Audio Pro International can now reveal the finalists for this year’s API Awards, in association with PLASA 2012.

Boasting a raft of new categories, the API Awards celebrate the very finest achievements, exponents and innovations from the world of pro audio.

Leading the line in our new range of categories is the API Rising Star 2012 Award, which recognises the work of the brightest young talent operating in the realms of live sound and studio engineering, whilst further cementing our commitment to the development of the industry’s budding stars.

Meanwhile we have also introduced a Marketing Team of the Year Award for each of the industry’s four key sectors: Live Sound; Installation; Broadcast; and Studio.

The ultimate winner in each category will now be chosen by a panel of up to 100 movers and shakers from across the entire pro audio sector, with winners to be announced on September 9th to coincide with the PLASA 2012 show.
