The AMP Awards for Music & Sound
The AMP Awards, launched in 2013, is the only US-based, not-for-profit competition in advertising and branding dedicated to honoring achievements in music and sound in all media. Winners will be announced at the second AMP Awards virtual online presentation, tentatively scheduled for July 14, 2021. The first such event, held in July of 2020, attracted an audience of key players in the ad agency, music publishing, record label and music production communities. It also featured a guest performance by the Grammy-nominated singer, producer and rapper Aloe Blacc, who appeared courtesy of his label, BMG.
Judged by members of the Association of Music Producers as well as professionals from the music, marketing and publishing fields, The AMP Awards underscore the power of music and sound in aligning brand identity with consumer experience.
A portion of the proceeds from The AMP Awards is donated to the Musician's Foundation, a non-profit group that addresses the chronic financial insecurity so prevalent in the music industry.
