Genelec is proud to join forces with Audio Media International (AMI) for its Next Generation spotlight, which will celebrate the most exciting breakthrough studio engineers and producers in the business.
We’re also pleased to announce that a third of our sponsorship fee will be donated to the Resonaari charity in Helsinki, which provides a wonderful music school for those with special needs.
The Next Generation campaign will shine a spotlight on those who have been making significant strides in their careers, spanning the full spectrum of styles, genres, budgets and studios. AMI will be sharing the profiles of those doing great work in the studio, exploring their careers to date, the key projects they have worked on so far, their route into the industry and what they are working on next. These profiles will be posted on all of their digital platforms – website, newsletter and social media channels.
How do I get involved?
To be considered for inclusion in the Next Generation spotlight, entrants should provide, in writing, examples of significant career progression over the past 12-18 months, such as being able to go full-time in their profession, client rosters, details of notably challenging/innovative/high-profile projects they have been a part of and any awards/prizes they have won or been nominated for. Essentially, an outline of demonstrable career development during this time frame.
To put yourself or anyone you feel fits the bill forward, please email AMI editor Daniel Gumble at *protected email* by November 7.
Who can enter?
Anyone. No barriers to entry, no age limits. Anyone is free to put themselves, or someone they know, forward. All AMI ask is that submissions clearly detail key areas of career progression. The focus is on those making significant strides in their career, not those who have been long-established as full-time professionals. Please contact Daniel if you have any questions regarding eligibility.
“Genelec has always had a strong commitment to fostering the next generation of studio engineers, since they are so obviously the lifeblood and future of the recording world,” says Genelec PR director Howard Jones. “From our annual sponsorship of the MPG Breakthrough Engineer award through to the Ilpo Martikainen Scholarship program that we run in conjunction with the AES each year, we see this as an essential part of giving back to the industry. Thanks to Audio Media International for giving these talented newcomers the attention they deserve.”
AMI’s Daniel Gumble adds: “We’re so excited about this project. There are so many incredibly talented engineers and producers working in the industry at the moment, many of whom do not receive the recognition they deserve. We feel it is our duty to support the next generation in any way we can and highlight the amazing work being done by those breaking into the industry. We are also delighted to be partnering with Genelec on this initiative. Their commitment to the future of the industry is second to none and it is an honour to be working with them.”
