On behalf of iZotope and Sonic State, we’d like to thank everyone for entering the Find Music in Everything Sound Design Competition! Over the past two weeks, we have been given an incredibly difficult task. Over two hundred and fifty entries were submitted for a chance to win over two thousand dollars worth of prizes from iZotope and Sonic State-- and the decisions were made after many hours of listening, multiple rounds of voting, and much deliberation. Sound sources displayed an unbelievable amount of creativity and ingenuity. Your Peruvian temples, instruments, sonograms, odd household items and environmental elements made eachentry unique, inspired, and truly in the spirit of iZotope Iris! Congratulations to the following entrants! Winners will be contacted through their SoundCloud accounts with instructions on how to claim their prizes.
Overall Winner - Tom Blazukas, NOISE-X Sound Design Noise-X Sound Designsubmitted a total of ten entries into various categories throughout the competition. At least one entry showed up on at least one judge’s favorites list from both iZotope and Sonic State panels. The entries were so diverse, however, that no single entry earned enough to be a category winner, but as an entrant, the NOISE-X Sound Design entries had the most votes from the judges overall - so congratulations Tom!
