Tech Awards Expand Voting
July 8, 2009 at 3:41 PM (PT)
The 25th annual TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE & CREATIVITY AWARDS has expanded the eligible voters to include members of the AUDIO ENGINEERING SOCIETY (AES), the Producers/Engineers Wing of THE RECORDING ACADEMY, SPARS, the GAME AUDIO NETWORK GUILD (G.A.N.G.) and other professional organizations to be announced.
"This is one of the most important steps the TEC Awards has taken since its inception in 1985," MIX FOUNDATION FOR EXCELLENCE IN AUDIO Pres. HILLEL RESNER said. "While the MIX FOUNDATION has always been an independent organization, voting has historically been limited to subscribers of MIX MAGAZINE. After the Foundation and the magazine parted company last fall, we felt it was important to expand the voting constituency and this is a big step in that direction."
"We at the AES are pleased to see the TEC AWARDS reach out to a wider constituency to ensure that the voting represents the most comprehensive range of knowledge and experience in professional audio," AES Exec. Dir. ROGER FURNESS.
THE FOUNDATION’s primary mission is to further understanding of and excellence in professional audio through educational programs, scholarships for students of the audio arts and sciences and other activities, including the TEC AWARDS and the TECnology Hall of Fame.
