Competition entries can be up to three minutes of sound that you’ve captured. Entries will be curated into a group of finalists by BeautifulNow and The Sound Agency, and then a communal vote will determine the winner.
“Sound affects us all every day, but most people are unconscious of its power,” said Julian Treasure, chairman of The Sound Agency. “My vision is to make the world of sound beautiful so I’m delighted to be judging this competition for the world’s most beautiful sounds – it will raise people’s awareness of sound and help us all to explore the aural beauty that so often goes unnoticed around us.”
Your entry must be a recording of captured sound. Composed and mixed sounds are not eligible. Please upload any of the following file formats: AIFF, WAVE (WAV), FLAC, ALAC, OGG, MP2, MP3, AAC, AMR or WMA. Attach a file name and a description of no more than 100 words.
