Sound Walk September 2020 Awards shortlist

After a very successful Sound Walk September 2020, we’re very excited to announce this year’s shortlist for the winners of the Sound Walk September 2020 Awards.

Over the next few weeks, you’ll be able to read, in more detail, the background of each of the shortlisted works, right here. Then, later this year, the SWS Advisory Board will decide on the winners and honourable mentions, taken from the shortlist.

The SWS Advisory Board consists of Josh Kopeček, Francesca Panetta, Julie Poitras Santos, Hamish Sewell, Duncan Speakman and Maja Thomas.

Without further ado, the shortlist of the Sound Walk September 2020 Awards (in alphabetical order):

We are aware that some of the members of the Advisory Board, and some of the team behind walklistencreate.org are involved with some of the platforms on which some of the shortlisted works are built. We’ve got processes in place to ensure the objectivity of the decision making process.

Winners and honourable mentions will be announced in an online ceremony in mid-January. Stay tuned.
