The deadline for entries to the 2005 AMP Awards for Excellence in TV Commercial Mixing, sponsored by the Association of Music Producers (AMP), is Monday, February 28. The fourth annual event (second as a national competition) honors the skills of the post-production audio engineer who mixes the final sound on television commercials.
The AMP, which represents advertising industry music producers and composers, will host an invite-only awards ceremony to announce the winners on Saturday, April 24, at the Village Recorder in Los Angeles. Awards are presented to the Mixer of the Year, as well as Finalists, Honorable Mention (for a campaign or spot), and a Judges Special Merit Award for a newcomer to the field. Last year’s Mixer of the Year was Bob Gremore of Mike Recording in West Los Angeles.
