Are you a pro-audio Rising Star? Then we want to hear from you

Audio Media International is once again on the lookout for the industry’s top up-and-comers as contenders for the Rising Star prize at this year’s Pro Sound Awards.

We’re keen to hear from young audio professionals who are able to demonstrate they have a bright future ahead of them.

Later this summer, AMI will begin publishing a series of Q&A profile articles on the nominees that catch our eye before running a final shortlist of ten as the event approaches.

The overall winner will be announced at the Pro Sound Awards ceremony on Thursday 22nd September 2016 at Ministry of Sound in London.

Anyone aged 30 or under or with two years of 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 potential Rising Stars themselves.

So if you think you deserve to be included, or if you know someone who does, send a short ‘pitch’ to AMI staff writer Colby Ramsey ( 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 15 July 2016.
