AES 136: Thanks to our honourable Judges

Experienced audio professionals are the backbone of our competitions.

The judges of the Student Recording and Student Design Competition at the 136th AES Convention in Berlin really had their work cut out. Not only did they have to review 70 (!) submissions, judging them and choosing the finalists was particularly tricky as the quality standard was exceptionally high throughout.

The judges' commitment didn't end there, though. They were also deeply involved during the main presentations of the finalists' projects and discussed them in great detail in front of a live audience. On top of that they happily answered questions of anyone who took part in the competition outside of the scheduled events.

They really went above and beyond and the Student Delegate Assembly is extremely grateful for their dedication, and hard and thorough work! 

Many thanks to:
