Best New Artist (BNA)


The Best New Artist (BNA) award goes to a single piece made by an outstanding emerging producer (or group of producers) who entered the audio field between February 2019 and May 2021. This award is intended to support newcomers to the medium developing work in any genre or length. The work submitted must be primarily produced, edited, sound designed, and written by the new artist, or by a group of individually eligible new artists, though editorial guidance and support from non-new artists is allowed.

There is one award in this category.


The 2022 Call for Entries will open in Fall 2022.
