Pro Sound Awards 2017 shortlist revealed!

Tickets for the Pro Sound Awards are available here.

PSNEurope is delighted to unveil the finalists for the prestigious 2017 Pro Sound Awards.

Celebrating the very finest individuals, companies and achievements from the past 12 months, the annual Pro Sound Awards has firmly established itself as the biggest awards bash on the industry calendar.

On Thursday September 28, the great and good from across the pro audio world will come together to find out who’ll be emerging victorious and taking home one of our coveted Pro Sound Awards gongs.

Moving from its traditional venue (Ministry of Sound), this year’s event will be heading to a brand new location in the form of London’s Steel Yard, with a special after party to follow the main event.

Categories this year include Best Live Sound Production, Sound Engineer Of The Year, Studio Of The Year, Best Installation Project, Broadcast Team Of The Year and Best Marketing Initiative. Each of these will be judged be a panel of pro audio biz experts.

But that’s not all.

We also have the Rising Star award (chosen by PSNEurope sister publication Audio Media International), along with the prized Grand Prix and Lifetime Achievement awards, each of which is chosen by the PSNEurope team. Please note, you can still nominate for the Rising Star award by sending a short ‘pitch’ to AMI senior staff writer Colby Ramsey ([email protected]) explaining why you, or the person you have in mind, should be considered. Please provide as much information as possible on the person’s recent projects and past achievements, as this will increase their chances of being selected.

You can revisit all of last year’s winners here.

So, without further ado, here are our 2017 Pro Sound Awards finalists.
