Last chance to submit Rising Star Award nominations

Time is running out to send in your nominations for the 2016 Pro Sound Award for Rising Star.

The Awards will return to Ministry of Sound in London on Thursday 22 September 2016, and Audio Media International is once again on the lookout for the industry’s top up-and-comers and encouraging them to come forward as contenders for the annual Rising Star accolade.

Once all the entries are in, AMI will begin publishing a series of Q&A profile articles on the nominees that catch our eye before running a final shortlist as the event approaches.

The overall winner will then be announced on stage at the ceremony in September.

Anyone aged 30 or under or with two years or 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 nominees themselves.

So if you think you deserve to be recognised as a Rising Star of pro-audio, or you would like to put someone else forward, 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.
