March 26th, 2010

Numerous people have asked us questions about the competition, so we thought we’d post an FAQ section here.

Q: What is the deadline?

A: May 5, 2010 is the new deadline

Q: I only see an intro and outro in the competition download pack. Where is the rest of the video? Do I just sound design over a black screen?

A: Actually, you are required to make your own video as well as design a soundtrack for this competition.  As we’re giving away the AVID Media Composer as well as Pro Tools, we are requiring not just audio, but video, too.

Q: Can we collaborate with other people?

A: We strongly encourage you to collaborate with fellow filmmakers, editors, even actors or animators. The grand prize (turnkey post system) contains a great set of equipment that can help get any basic Audio/Video post studio up and running.

Q: Does the video have to be original?

A: You can use un-original material but you must credit the source and copyright owner either in the video itself or a credit list that you send to us.

SONOPEDIA Sound Design Competition Results

February 8th, 2009

With great pleasure we’d like to announce the winner of the SONOPEDIA Sound Design Competition hosted by Blastwave FX andPost Magazine. Congratulations to Weston Fonger, you will receive SONOPEDIA, The Encyclopedia of HD Sound Effects- a retail value of $3,999!! Runners up were Bob Hart and Erik Reimers. Check out the top three pieces below:

The Winning composition was designed by Weston Fonger, who currently resides in NYC. In his words, “A futuristic apocalypse reversion. It was created only using the supplied sound fx, Protools software, and an array of plug-ins.” What Academy Award winner Richard King had to say about Weston’s piece:

“[this piece]… gave me the strongest emotional reaction … It’s clear the sound designer was striving to tell a story – certainly an abstract one which the listener can interpret in any number of ways, but there’s a purposeful development to the sounds. The subtle moments are well done and pleasingly organic, with a very effective use of total silence in one transition, and the louder, denser sections retain their clarity. The sounds chosen stand out for their uniqueness and clarity and the mix is focused. Very good work!”

The first runner up in the SONOPEDIA Sound Design Competitionwas Bob Hart. Academy Award winner Lon Bender said the following:

“[this piece] … conveyed great creativity from a sonic standpoint … additionally there is a clear understanding of the goal of the piece. The overall structure of a sales piece is to make the reveal of the subject of the piece the most exciting, which I feel he really did successfully.”


This piece by Erik Reimers was the second runner up in the SONOPEDIA Sound Design Competition:,. Academy Award winner Randy Thom had this to say about it:

“Designing voices for creatures and robots is probably the most difficult kind of sound design there is. [Bot vs Bee] had a nice narrative arc, it was funny, and I’m guessing the designer had to twist the raw sounds quite a bit to achieve the final result.”

Thank you to all 68 sound designers who submitted entries. Also, a huge thank you to the judges who participated with lots of excitement. As Lon said, “I was impressed by all of the entries., fantastic that there is so much
talent out there…”
