Celebrating our 2012 SoundCloud Community Fellows
The SoundCloud Community Fellowship is an opportunity for individuals to showcase their creativity with sound over the course of three months. This year’s Fellowship concludes today. We wanted to say congratulations and thanks to our Fellows for being part of this journey, and to our great community for listening and engaging.
So, how did we get here? After our announcement in July, we received a whopping 184 proposals from across the globe. We were truly moved by your enthusiasm. From there, we had a wonderful panel of honorary judges select our 15 final 2012 SoundCloud Community Fellows.
Say hello to:
These unique projects were made alive by a diverse group of people: professional radio producers, independent producers, students, musicians and more. Most importantly, these individuals used sound as a creative medium to share their stories and the stories of others, to touch upon the range of human emotions we experience.
Noteworthy publications from Social Times to Nieman Journalism Lab, Wired, Hypebot, Betabeat, Media Bistro’s Fishbowl LA and more also helped push our Fellows’ ambitious projects to a wider audience.
To our dearest 2012 SoundCloud Community Fellows:
We were honored that you made the active decision to apply to be part of the Fellowship this year. The hard work, dedication and stellar work we’ve seen (and especially heard!) have been great to share with our community and beyond. Most importantly, you are leaders in demonstrating limitless possibilities for creativity with sound. To celebrate, we’ve worked on a montage to pay tribute to all your hard work.
Upon reflecting on this year’s Fellowship, Fellows shared their own learnings and highlights throughout the Fellowship as well as advice if you’re interested in pursuing a project related to sound.
We hope these projects will inspire you to try new things in your life, whether they’re with sound or not. Opportunities are there. We look forward to next year’s Fellowship and hope to meet the next bunch that loves sound as much as we do.
