High five to sound creators!
At SoundCloud, we’re continuously striving to unmute the web. Today, we’re looking for leaders to join our mission!
After last year’s inaugural program, today we’re launching our 2nd annual SoundCloud Community Fellowship to support and encourage the best creative minds to express their vision through sound. From mid-August to mid-October 2012, we will support up to 10 Fellows as they pursue a project of their own design using sound as a creative medium.
So who are Community Fellows? Our Fellows are people who want to be heard, people with a story to tell, pursuing sound projects that cause a visceral reaction in their listeners. Our Fellows aim to make us laugh, cry, or think. They want to inspire and motivate others to follow in their footsteps and express creatively through sound. With SoundCloud’s support, we’ll bring to life the projects you dream up. And together, we’ll demonstrate to the world the compelling nature of sound.
To get you inspired, here are some categories we are looking to pair with a potential Fellow. If you have ideas for creative sound projects in one of the following categories, please specify this in your project proposal. Feel free of course to also send us your proposals for projects outside of those categories:
- Arts & Culture
- News & Politics
Take a look at the proposal process here and send us your proposals to eliana(dot)sur(at)soundcloud.com pronto. Don’t delay – it’s a rolling submissions process so the sooner you apply, the better your chances will be of getting the support you request. Final deadline for consideration is 11:59pm Pacific Time on Wednesday July 25, 2012 (UPDATE: deadline extended to July 27, 2012 11:59pm PT). Questions? Email Eliana at eliana(dot)sur(at)soundcloud.com
Alright, let’s do this! We can’t wait to learn about your ideas for creative and engaging sound projects.
UPDATE: the call for entries is now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted your project proposals.
