PRO SOUND AWARDS: Genelec backs Installation category

Monitoring specialist Genelec has been named Installation category sponsor for the inaugural Pro Sound Awards.

The event – also sponsored by Sennheiser, Digico, Focusrite Novation, Sony, Fineline Media Finance and Martin Audio – will be held at Ministry of Sound on September 19th 2013.

Genelec has had a busy 2013 so far. At ISE, the firm debuted its new Intelligent Signal-Sensing Technology and it used the Prolight + Sound show to release its energy efficient M Series monitor range to much acclaim.

The lobbying period for the Pro Sound Awards remains open until June 14th, so there’s not long left to send over your ideas and nominations.

The event recognises excellence in the Live/Touring, Studio, Installed Sound and Broadcast Audio sectors, and will also feature special awards for Rising Star, Marketing Campaign/Initiative of the Year, Grand Prix and Lifetime Achievement.

To lobby, send a short pitch up to 300 words for each award to All nominations should apply to events/projects between September 9th 2012 and June 14th 2013 – when lobbying closes – and participants are welcome to nominate themselves.

Provide as much factual information as possible – data and evidence of notable successes are encouraged – and up to three hotlinks to relevant material online can also be provided. Based on the email nominations, the Pro Sound Awards team will create a list of finalists for each category by looking at the performance of the nominated companies/people over the past year, as well as the information provided by the lobbying emails.

A full list of award categories, details of eligibility and other useful information is available on the Pro Sound Awards website here.
