The globally renowned trade association, best known for the annual US-based NAMM show, will play a leading role in the awards in its mission to acknowledge the best products, companies and people in all sectors of Pro Audio.
“We are really pleased to sponsor the 2010 Audio Pro Industry Excellence Awards, celebrating the best in pro audio innovation and creativity. The NAMM Show has long served as the hub for live sound and recording equipment from around the world, and we are proud to provide a supportive business environment for this important sector of our industry. We’re glad that with the Awards now in their second year Audio Pro International continues to reward excellence in technology and its creative use,” stated Betty Heywood, director of international affairs.
“We are delighted to have NAMM join as Headline Sponsor. Its backing will further cement the awards as the true voice of the industry,” explained API’s editor, Andrew Low.
The Audio Pro Industry Excellence Awards are arranged into two categories: Studio & Broadcast Sound and Live & Installed Sound. There is also a Lifetime Achievement Award presented to an individual who has contributed significantly to the industry over a sustained time period.Article continues below
In the two sector-based categories, awards for exceptional events or projects will go to the person, team or organisation tasked with providing the sound as a product, either through record production, sound system installation, hire, deployment, or broadcast services.
A judging panel, drawn from all sectors of the business, has been assembled and nominations will be published in API’s September issue and online. The winners will be announced in October.
