API Awards return for 2012

The Audio Pro International Awards return once again for 2012, with a handful of new categories thrown in for good measure.

Celebrating the finest achievements, exponents and innovations in the world of pro audio, the API Awards will be announced on Sunday, September 9th, to coincide with the PLASA 2012 show at London’s Earls Court.

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 lobbying process is now open, which means you can now nominate yourself or a company of your choice for each of the appropriate awards by simply emailing API editor Daniel Gumble at with a paragraph or two explaining the reasons for your nomination.

When the lobbying period closes on July 9th, we then count the nominations and – based on those – produce the list of finalists. It is then up to the independent trade judges to make their final selection on who deserves to win. We’ll be closely monitoring the process over the coming weeks; providing frequent reminders so you don’t miss out.

Finalists will be announced on Tuesday, July 17th, with a panel of independent trade judges deciding on the winners.
