Deadline for Rising Star Award nominations this Friday

There are now just a few days left to send in your nominations for the Rising Star prize at this year’s Pro Sound Awards at London’s Ministry of Sound.

As we revealed last month, Audio Media International is on the hunt for the best up-and-coming audio professionals in the business with the aim of profiling the best entries online and compiling a shortlist in the September issue of the magazine, before announcing the overall winner at the event itself on 24 September 2015.

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 Matthew Fellows ( 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 17 July 2015.
