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, worldwide, 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 or sound design for any visual media.

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

For the time being, while we integrate the two competitions and oversee these exciting changes, we will not be holding an awards night.


"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."
