2017's Music+Sound Awards will open for entries

on January 16th 2017

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.

Until now, The Music+Sound Awards have held two competitions; a UK one and an International one.  From 2017 there will be just one, global competition, billed The Music+Sound Awards.

In the next year, while we integrate the two competitions and oversee these exciting changes, we will not be holding an awards night. Our plan is to bring this back as soon as possible.

Winners of 2016's competitions can be viewed on the links above. 

For all key 2017 dates, see below.


"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."
