From the everyday sounds that encapsulate the events of the past twelve months to the year’s most innovative and creative sound technology, the Sound of the Year Awards celebrates sound in all its forms and from all corners of the world. Judged by a panel of leading lights from the international sound community, the winner of each category will receive a pair of basicUcho microphones - a set of phantom-powered, high-quality omnidirectional electret microphones courtesy of LOM.
Category partners this year include The British Library, Natural History Museum, Quiet Mark, Accidental, the Southbank Centre’s National Poetry Library, Sound On Sound, and UK Hearing Conservation Association.
An awards ceremony will be held at The British Library on on 11th May 2023 - book tickets here.
Submissions are now closed for all categories except the Children's category, which are hosted in partnership with Sound and Music's Minute of Listening (Deadline: 8th May).
