SyncSummit and Epic Music LA are delighted to announce the first annual Excellence in Sports Music Awards (ESMA), taking place on December 5, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. ESMAwas created to recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements of music professionals, musicians, and athletes (and the people that work with them) in the unique art of composing and licensing music for sports events and programming as well as branded sports campaigns in all media and at live events.
ESMA brings all the people that help weave music, brands and sports together – artists, athletes, agents, owners, producers, music supervisors, TV producers, film directors, sports sponsoring brands, venue managers, and ad agencies to highlight the best usage of music in sports content, to recognize and reward the top campaigns, and to shine a spotlight on the unique partnerships between music, sports, and brands.
These are the professionals that are shaping the trends for how music is used in sports productions.
States ESMA co-founder and Epic Music LA CEO, Perry Firoz: “The Excellence in Sports Music Awards is the first forum showcasing the best usages of music in sports, and partnerships between music and sports. We’re excited to have the chance, for the first time, to recognize the amazing work people are doing in this uniquely specialized niche of bringing together music and sport for TV, online, in advertising, and at live events.”
Adds SyncSummit CEO and Awards co-founder, Mark Frieser: “We’re delighted to partner with EPIC to create the Excellence in Sports Music Awards. Sports music, whether composed or licensed, comprises a large part of the music that’s used in media, and we look forward to the opportunity to recognize the great work done by people to bring sports to life with music.”Nomination submissions will commence in November 2017, with categories carefully selected to reflect the ways music connects to and enhances the sport experience. The awards will be judged by a panel of seasoned industry professionals from across brands, advertising, music, and of course, sports.
