The familiar sessions with judges for the AES SDA's first 2020 Student Recording & Design Competitions (shown above at AES New York 2019) will be virtualized online.
Online Competition for All AES Student Members!
The Audio Engineering Society's Student Delegate Assembly is updating the Student Recording and Design Competitions for the 148th AES Convention following the cancellation of the in-person aspects of the Convention due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As it will be impossible to host our regular student competitions, the Student Delegate Assembly has adapted the competitions to be completely online as a component of a virtualized Convention Technical Program.
For the Student Recording Competition, the category rules will remain the same as published. The submission deadline is April 27. Registration for the online AES 148th Virtual Convention (at a modest registration fee of $25. USD) is required prior to competition judging. The online registration portal will be activated prior to the submission deadline. More details about the online finals will be coming soon. The SDA strongly encourages every student entering the competition to read the entirety of the rules, even if the student has entered in the past as many rules have changed. The full outline of the rules can be found here: http://www.aes.org/students/awards/recording/. Any questions or concerns can be directed to the Student Delegate Assembly by email.
For the Student Design Competition, the projects will be judged in an online format and finalists will be chosen through that medium. Deadlines and registration are identical to the Recording Competition, as detailed above. The SDA strongly encourages every student entering the competition to read the entirety of the rules, even if the student has entered in the past as many rules have changed. The full outline of the rules can be found here: http://www.aes.org/students/awards/design/. Any questions or concerns can be directed to the Student Delegate Assembly by email.
The SDA is excited to see all of the online submissions! We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy at home.
