Last year, the event was a great success, with lots of laughter, celebration and meeting of like minded individuals. It brought the success of artists such as Jamie N Commons, who won the Sync Artist Of The Year award, and senior board member Rupert Hollier took home the award for Overall Sync of the Year for House of Fraser's #YourRules Christmas campaign featuring Grace's You Don't Own Me.
This year is a particularly exciting year, because a selection of new categories have been added to the list, including Overall TV Series Soundtrack, Overall Film Soundtrack, Best Sync - Video Game Soundtrack, Best Branded Entertainment and Best Social Media/Online Partnership. We’re really looking forward to hearing the winners for these additions.
For the first time, there is an after party this year, thanks to TAPE London. Attendees will be invited to TAPE, in Hanover Square from 10pm on 19th October. TAPE is a wonderful venue choice; perfect for a celebration of music as it has hosted an array of incredible artists over the years, such as The Weeknd, Skream, ASAP Rocky and so many more big names. We will see you there!
