The Audio Engineering Society announces the Student Design Competition for the 133rd AES Convention in San Francisco's Moscone Center, which takes place October 26-29. 2012. The competition is open to aspiring student audio engineers worldwide, who are invited to develop original hardware and software designs for review by a panel of pro audio manufacturers, product designers and end users.

“Student new product entries have always been integral components of AES Conventions," says Committee Education Co-Chair John Krivit. “We are making a special effort this year to raise the bar. The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2012. Students will have the entire summer to conceive, develop and refine their dream products. Prizes will be awarded at the AES Convention on October 28 Students must attend the Convention to be considered for the finals.”

All students will have the opportunity to display their projects at the Convention’s tabletop exhibition. Entrants must register as students for the full Convention technical program, but AES membership is not required for entry submission.
