The Music+Sound Awards are the world’s first and only global awards programme to recognise and celebrate the indispensable role and outstanding contribution that both music and sound design play in the media.

Aimed at professionals working in advertising, film and television (branding and programming), the awards are open to anyone who is or has been involved in the creation, composition, sourcing, licensing, briefing and / or production of music and sound design for any visual media broadcast or released in the relevant territory.

We hold two competitions: International and UK. The UK Music+Sound Awards are now closed for entries with finalists being announced 2nd February and winners at a glittering ceremony on 2nd March 2016. The International Music+Sound Awards are now open for entries, and work that has been released or broadcast between 28th March 2015 and 1st April 2016, anywhere in the world, is eligible.


"Music and sound have never played such a vital role, not just in communications but also in culture. As a result, The Music+Sound Awards have grown into a truly important event in the creative calendar. The Music+Sound Awards are about rewarding the talent that really understand this very special discipline."
